The Austrian Development Agency (ADA), the operational unit of Austrian Development Cooperation, concentrates its activities on key regions in Africa, Asia, South-Eastern and Eastern Europe as well as the Caribbean. This is in line with the international trend of placing greater emphasis on comprehensive programme objectives and reducing isolated interventions. The ADA field offices make sure that local cooperation is based on equal partnership, while also guaranteeing effective monitoring and control. The projects and programmes are tailored to local conditions and agreed with local partners. The key regions and priority countries of Austrian Development Cooperation are:
- The Caribbean
- West Africa: Burkina Faso
- East Africa and Horn of Africa: Ethiopia, Uganda
- Southern Africa: Mozambique
- Himalayas/Hindu Kush: Bhutan
- Danube Region/Western Balkans: Albania, Kosovo
- Black Sea Region/South Caucasus: Moldova, Armenia, Georgia
- Middle East and Palestinian Territories
Besides cooperating with the governments of priority countries, ADA also promotes initiatives of civil-society and private-sector organisations in these and other developing countries.
