Development Co-operation Directorate (DCD-DAC)

Donor profile: Austria

 

Member of the OECD Development Assistance Committee (DAC) since 1966.

In 2012, Austria’s net ODA amounted to USD 1.11 billion. Compared to 2011, when Austrian ODA dropped in real terms by 14%, the 2012 ODA volume represents a 6.1% increase. This increase is mainly due to debt relief operations within sub-Saharan Africa.

After rising to 0.32% in 2010, the Austrian ODA to GNI ratio contracted to 0.27% in 2011, falling short of the EU intermediate target of 0.51%. Austria has reaffirmed its commitment to reach the EU target of 0.7% ODA/GNI but recognises that it will not be able to do so by the deadline of 2015 due to domestic budget cuts. In 2012, the ODA/GNI was 0.28%, much lower than Austria’s expected target (0.47%) due to planned debt cancellation for Sudan over 2012-14.

Latest evaluation report

eval_austriaAustria has committed within a framework of international agreements to gender equality and women’s empowerment through gender mainstreaming. The evaluation of Austria's development co-operation gender policy, however, found that the relevance of the gender policy document itself appears to be rather limited. Although Austrian Development Cooperation staff are aware of this issue, they do not yet use it for providing guidance for their work.
