OECD Development Co-operation Peer Reviews: Austria 2015

image of OECD Development Co-operation Peer Reviews: Austria 2015

This periodic review (roughly every five years) of the individual development co-operation efforts of Austria assesses the performance of Austria's programme, not just that of its development co-operation agency, and examines both policy and implementation. It takes an integrated, system-wide perspective.



Allocating Austria's official development assistance

Austria’s ODA volume declined substantially in 2009, but it has stayed stable since. However, cuts in the ODA budget are foreseen in 2015 and beyond, which risks hampering Austria’s ability to realise the ambitions outlined in its policy documents. The government’s intention to develop a legally binding roadmap to achieve the 0.7% UN target for ODA/GNI is positive step forward. Debt relief should be included in Austria’s ODA projections only after this is agreed by the Paris Club. Austria is also encouraged to resume the longstanding high quality reporting of its statistics to the DAC.
