Arab-DAC Dialogue on Development


Arab donors have been providing substantial amounts of official development assistance (ODA) for decades and have considerable experience to share on promoting economic growth and reducing poverty in developing countries. Engaging with members of the Arab Coordination Group (ACG) is consequently a priority for the OECD Development Assistance Committee (DAC). The two communities have agreed to meet on a regular basis to discuss development issues, identify ways to better co-ordinate activities, learn from each other’s experiences and become more effective in supporting developing countries’ efforts to deliver development results.
