Short Description:

Overall goal

Das OEZA Mikrokreditprogramm wurde 2001 evaluiert. Seither hat sich der Mikrofinanzbereich dynamisch entwickelt. Im Zuge der Erstellung des Landesprogramms 2007-2009 für Uganda soll das bisherige Engagement der OEZA im Bereich Mikrofinanz aufgearbeitet und systematisiert werden.

Dieses Assessment sollte eine Grundlage liefern, um die weitere Vorgangsweise der ADA im Bereich Mikrokredit zu planen. Das Assessment solte folgende Teile beinhalten:

- Eine Beurteilung/Bewertung des bisherigen Engagements der OEZA im Bereich Mikrofinanz in Uganda.

- Eine Darstellung der aktuellen Situation des Mikrofinanzmarktes, um die Rahmenbedinungen zu kennen.

- Vorschläge/Empfehlungen von Möglichkeiten des zukünftigen Engagements der OEZA.

    • 1= policy is a significant objective of the activity
    • 2= policy is the principal objective of the activity
  • Donor/ source of funding: The ADA is not only implementing projects and programmes of the Austrian Development Cooperation , but also projects funded from other sources and donors such as
    • AKF - Foreign Disaster Fund of the Austrian federal government
    • BMLFUW - Federal Ministry for Agriculture, Forestry, Environment and Water
    • EU - Funds of the European Commission
    • Others - various other donors are listed in ADA’s annual business report.
  • Type of Aid – Aid modalities: classifies transfers from the donor to the first recipient of funds such as budget support, core contributions and pooled programmes and funds to CSOs and multilateral organisations, project-type interventions, experts and other technical assistance, scholarships and student costs in donor countries, debt relief, administrative costs and other in-donor expenditures.
  • Purpose/ sector code: classifies the specific area of the recipient’s economic or social structure, funded by a bilateral contribution.
  • Tied/Untied: Untied aid is defined as loans and grants whose proceeds are fully and freely available to finance procurement from all OECD countries and substantially all developing countries. Transactions are considered tied unless the donor has, at the time of the aid offer, clearly specified a range of countries eligible for procurement which meets the tests for “untied” aid.
