Reducing poverty, ensuring peace and preserving the environment are the priorities of Austrian Development Cooperation. To make sure this happens in coordination with our partner countries, the Austrian Development Agency (ADA), the operational unit of Austrian Development Cooperation, has established its own foreign offices in eleven priority countries.
The staff of these offices in Kosovo, Albania, Moldova, Georgia, Armenia, Bhutan, Burkina Faso, Ethiopia, Uganda, Mozambique and the Palestinian Territories work closely with the respective governments, non-governmental organizations, companies and other partners on the ground.
To date, countless people have benefitted from Austrian Development Cooperation: They have gained access to potable water, received training in their mother tongues, started a micro enterprise with the help of a microcredit or improved their agricultural production. From 2004-2014, ADA has implemented around 3000 programs and projects with a total financial volume of almost 900 Mio Euros.
