Development Co-operation Directorate of the Development Assistance Committee
The DAC GOVNET engages in discussions around problems and good practices of governance problems like fighting corruption, human rights and rights-based approaches, decentralisation, governance and participatory development. These themes are also of importance for Austrian Development Cooperation in a number of projects, especially in Africa. Thus, by supporting the GOVNET, ADC benefits directly from the output of the working groups, and gets the opportunity to contribute by sharing own experiences. Except the work on Conflict Prevention and Governance, the other posts of the DAC GOVNET work programme require voluntary funding from DAC members. Austria as a member of the working group wants to contribute to the GÒVNET Programme of Work and Budget (PWB) 2005-2006 an amount of ¿75.000,00.
