Peacebuilding and conflict prevention

Publisher: Austrian Development Agency

Volume: 17 pages, pdf


This policy document on peacebuilding and conflict prevention serves as a guideline for strategic planning and implementation of the peacebuilding and conflict prevention focuses of ADC as managed by the Austrian Development Agency (ADA). It describes the motives, targets and priority intervention focuses of ADC in this area. It also serves to establish the position of ADC in dialogue with developing countries and countries in transition, the international donor community and other development policy actors in Austria.

ADC takes a holistic approach and regards the promotion of peacebuilding and conflict prevention and of human rights as essential components of good governance. The policy document on good governance thus provides the framework for the policy documents on peacebuilding and conflict prevention and on human rights.

ADC bases its position on the Austrian Development Cooperation Act (DCA) and on international discussion in the United Nations, European Union and Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) (e.g. in the Conflict Prevention and Peace Building Network or the Working Group on Fragile States).
