Austrian Development Cooperation (ADA)
ADA is the operational unit of the Austrian Development Cooperation and Cooperation with Eastern Europe (ADC). The ADA is responsible for the implementation of all bilateral programmes and projects in the ADC partner countries and administrates the corresponding budget.
Its working basis is the Three-Year Programme on Austrian Development Policy, which is elaborated by the Federal Ministry for European and International Affairs. It defines the central position of the Austrian development policy and the strategic framework conditions of the ADC. This programme is based on the new Development Cooperation Act, in which sustainable economic and social development in line with the principle of environmental protection is enshrined as the central goal.
This division of work between the Federal Ministry for European and International Affairs and ADA ensures coherent official development policy as well as efficient implementation of the legal guidelines for Development Cooperation.
In the frame of the bilateral projects and programmes in developing countries, the Austrian Development Cooperation also provides funding for developmental projects of Austrian NGOs, initiatives as well as private enterprises.
Co-financing can be provided for projects within and outside the core bilateral technical assistance programme; like this action operated by CENTRIC AUSTRIA INTERNATIONAL
