Short Description:

Overall goal

With the Millennium Development Goals drawing to a close,and the world engaged in shaping the post-2015 development framework, the 2015-16 Programme of Work and Budget (PWB) of the Development Assistance Committee of the OECD will be the DAC’s bridge into the post-2015 world.

Austria has with the other members of the DAC endorsed the strategic orientations at the occasion of the DAC Senior Level Meeting (SLM) in March 2014. The Austrian Development Cooperation supports the PWB 2015/16 with a voluntary contribution of EUR 400,000 for the next two years in order to strenghten the efforts for the Global Partnership for Effective Development Cooperation and the Post-2015 work.

Austria supports the main aims of the PWB like the modernisation of the financing for development framework, the promotion of effective development co-operation through peer review mechanisms and the strengthening of their systems for monitoring and evaluation as well as the implementation of effective policies in order to support the achievement of sustainable development goals and to address global challenges such as climate change as well as the support of international partnerships that contribute to the effective implementation and monitoring of the post-2015 agenda.

Austria contributes particularly through its active involvement in several working parties of the DAC (Environet, Gendernet, INCAF, Govnet, Statistics and Evaluation) to the development, promotion and implementation of effective development co-operation policies. Nine priorities have been agreed:

Implementation and monitoring a post-2015 sustainable development agenda Post-2015 work
