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.



Austria's vision and policies for development co-operation

Austria’s 2003 Federal Act on Development Co-operation and the Three-Year Programme 2013-2015 provide the legal and strategic focus for Austria’s ODA programme, with poverty reduction at the centre. The Three- Year Programme is considered the medium-term policy for Austria’s development co-operation. However, it does not cover the entire Austrian system. Bringing all aid-spending ministries in line with the three-year programmes, and making them accountable for meeting the objectives of the programmes, would contribute to improving the coherence and effectiveness of Austria’s development co-operation. Austria has formulated policies and strategies for most of its priority sectors and themes. When updating these documents, it should take its comparative advantage into account, as well as where Austria’s development co-operation is needed most.
