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. This is in line with the international trend of placing greater emphasis on comprehensive programme objectives and reducing isolated interventions.
