Short Description:

Overall goal

The Austrian Development Cooperation supports the "Programme of Work and Budget (PWB) 2013/14" of the OECD DAC with a voluntary contribution of EUR 375,000 for the next two years. The work programme 2013-1014 brings a clear set of thirteen priority outcomes the Committee seeks to achieve over the next two years. These priority outcomes, which were endorsed by members at the DAC Senior Level meeting on 3-4 April 2012, reflect the new era of development cooperation, characterised by a broadening agenda in terms of sources of development finance, challenges and actors.

• Modernising DAC core work on peer reviews(1) and statistics on development finance (2)

• Contributing to the Busan Partnership for Effective Development Cooperation: Implementation of the Busan Partneship Agreement (3)

• Moving towards a post-2015 development framework: Implications for ongoing and new DAC policy work:

-Re-imagining development and development cooperation post-2015 (4)

-Flexible and responsive policy support to develop innovative approaches to reduce poverty and gender inequality and to build resilience (gender equality, food security, Risk and resilience) (5)

-Effective governance, peacebuilding and statebuilding (INCAF, New Deal, International Dialogue) (6)

-Green growth, climate change and environment (7)

-Development architecture and global governance (8)

-Tax and development and addressing illicit financial flows (9)
