Development cooperation and humanitarian aid

Children in front of the Masibambane College in South Africa

Vienna supports NGOs in carrying out development projects in Africa, Asia and Eastern Europe. The Municipal Department 27 - European Affairs (MA 27) is in charge of the implementation of these activities.

Once a year, the Municipal Department 27 - European Affairs (MA 27) invites NGOs to submit funding proposals for development projects.

Every year, a development policy conference is held to inform the public.
