CIDC (Committee for International Development Cooperation)

Korea’s major ODA policies are decided at the CIDC, with the Prime Minister as the Chair of the CIDC. Based on the Framework Act (Article 7.2), the CIDC is composed of 25 members including the Prime Minister, Ministers of related ministries, heads of ODA implementing agencies, and civilian experts and holds meetings approximately three times a year. The CIDC deliberates and decides upon the framework plans and annual comprehensive implementation plans and evaluates the ODA policies and the progress of ODA projects based on the Framework Act. Major ODA policies are adopted at the CIDC meetings when the Chair and members of the CIDC submit policy items for deliberation, and over half of the present members agree on the policies.

The Working Committee discusses the agenda in advance of the CIDC meeting, and pre-coordinates the policies among its 25 members, which include the Vice Minister of the PMO as the chair along with director-level senior officials in relevant ministries and civilian experts.

The Sub-Committee for Evaluation deliberates on the evaluation items prior to the CIDC meeting. This Sub-Committee is composed of senior-level officials of the MOSF and MOFA, executives of EDCF and KOICA, and civilian experts chaired by the Deputy Minister for National Agenda of the PMO. The Sub-Committee for Evaluation appoints 9 civilian experts among 15 committee members in order to ensure professional expertise in evaluation. In addition, the Sub-Committee for Evaluation itself sometimes conducts evaluation on urgent items in need of improvement for the integrated implementation of ODA, and deliberates and approves evaluation results of ODA conducted by implementation agencies. The decisions of the Sub-Committee for Evaluation can be adopted as ODA policies through the discussion of the Working Committee and the CIDC.

In summary, major ODA policies are decided through consensus with the airing of different opinions by relevant ministries, implementation agencies and civilian experts. The decisions adopted by the CIDC are legally-binding and monitored every six months. The CIDC held the eighteenth meeting in March 2014 since the first meeting in March 2, 2006. It adopted major ODA policies including the Mid-term Strategy (2011-2015), Annual ODA Implementation Plans, Country Partnership Strategies (CPS) for 26 priority partner countries, accession to the OECD DAC, the Strategic Plan for International Development Cooperation, Establishment Plan for the Korean ODA Model, and the Activation Plan for Collaboration in ODA among ministries. The result of discussions at the CIDC is as follows;
