ACG has been collaborating with the OECD Development Assistance Committee (DAC) for over ten years to advance solutions to critical development issues and identify opportunities for collaboration. The group meets annually at a thematic Arab-DAC Dialogue to identify priorities and mobilize resources for development through joint task forces. In 2019, the group initiated its task force on water and sanitization for affected communities in Guinea and Tunisia. Investment in sustainable water management, water infrastructure and safe, reliable, and affordable water supply and adequate sanitation services have improved standards of living, expanded local economies, led to the creation of jobs and resulted in greater social inclusion.
