Overall goal

Heftige Regenfälle im Juli und August 2006 haben zu Überflutungen in weiten Teilen Äthiopiens geführt, so auch in der Provinz Gondar (Region Amhara), einem Zielgebiet des OEZA-Landesprogramms Äthiopien.

Zur Sicherung der Erfolge der Projekte in dieser Region sollen nun die Soforthilfemaßnahmen des Äthiopischen Roten Kreuzes (Ethiopian Red Cross Society, ECRS) unterstützt werden, im besonderen

- Wasseraufbereitung für die betroffenen Haushalte und Rehabilitierung von in Mitleidenschaft gezogenen Brunnen

- Sensibilisierung der Bevölkerung für Hygieneprobleme und Beobachtung des möglichen Ausbruchs von Krankheiten

- Verteilung von Haushaltsartikeln als Ersatz für verlorene Güter

  • 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.
