ONE Highlights 3 Outcomes From DAC High-Level Meeting

ONE: Aid donors met to discuss how to change the rules; here is what happened
Sara Harcourt, policy director for development finance at the ONE Campaign, discusses three “noteworthy” outcomes from the OECD Development Assistance Committee’s (DAC) high-level meeting, where members discussed the mandate of the DAC, its role in the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) era, and potential rule changes as to what counts as aid. The three outcomes include “1. Clearer rules on ‘in-donor refugee costs’ … 2. No decision on private sector instruments, but one to watch … 3. Plans to review country graduation criteria, particularly for small island states” (11/1).
