Short Description:

Overall goal

Die Implementation Support Unit (ISU) des Genfer Zentrums für Humanitäre Minenräumung (GICHD) trägt maßgeblich zur Implementierung der Ottawa-Konvention bei und hat seit ihrer Gründung wertvolle Unterstützung bei der Vorbereitung der intersessionalen Arbeit im Rahmen der Konvention geleistet. Die ISU war von besonderer Wichtigkeit in der Vorbereitungsphase zur 1. Überprüfungskonferenz 2004 in Nairobi, deren Präsidentschaft von Österreich ausgeübt wurde.

Damit gehört Österreich zu jenen Staaten, die besonders von der Unterstützung durch das ISU profitieren.

Eine Unterstützung der ISU entspricht dem Ziel des OEZA Minenaktionsprogramms, die Universalisierung der Ottawa Konvention weiter zu fördern und voranzutreiben. Österreich hat das ISU Budget bereits 2004 und 2005 finanziell unterstützt; Diese Unterstützung wird in analoger Weise auch 2006 weitergeführt.

    • 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.
