Preventing and combating corruption is a major goal of the Austrian Development Agency, the operational unit of Austrian Development Cooperation. Combating corruption is essential for sustainable development, as also emphasised in the 2030 Agenda of the United Nations. Based on international guidelines, such as the Paris Declaration on Aid Effectiveness, the final document of the High Level Forum in Busan, the UN Convention against Corruption (UNCAC) and the OECD DAC Principles for Donor Action in Anti-Corruption, Austria is committed to preventing and combating both internal and external corruption.
