Austrian Development Cooperation (ADC) supports countries in Africa, Asia and Central America as well as in South-Eastern Europe in their sustainable social, economic and democratic development.
The centerpiece of the Austrian Development Agency (ADA) is the department Programs and Projects International. Via offices abroad, country and regional officers here keep in direct contact with the partner countries to ensure the coherent and efficient implementation of Austrian Development Cooperation. Besides cooperation with non-governmental organizations, this department also organizes collaboration with the private sector. Other major concerns are humanitarian aid as well as quality assurance and knowledge management for setting thematic priorities in Austrian Development Cooperation.
Supporting this operative department are three others, Finance & Audit Division, General Administration and Development Communication and Education in Austria.
