Content - Summary

The Austrian Development Cooperation is committed to further increase resources into the
sanitation sector in line with international and national policies to accelerate scaling up interventions
satisfying peoples basic sanitation needs. A new sanitation strategy, which will put
further emphasis on basic principles towards sustainable sanitation, will follow.
Capacity development is regarded as essential on all professional levels – curricula have to be
updated to include aspects of low cost solutions, water saving, groundwater protection and
reuse of nutrients and energy.
Capacity development has to capture cultural reality and interest of people at all levels of the
population and involve them in the planning, operation and management of systems.
The Austrian Development Cooperation supports efforts to harmonise international aid monitoring
systems in order to facilitate the tracking of financial flows for sustainable sanitation and
improvement of coordination. In particular, Austria supports efforts by the OECD-DAC) to
split the existing water sector codes into the supply and the sanitation components.
