National Programme Manager

Georgia is a priority country of the Austrian Development Cooperation (ADC) with the Austrian Development Agency GmbH (ADA) as its operational arm acting as a hub for the overall bilateral cooperation in Georgia. In Georgia, ADC supports development programmes and projects targeting poverty reduction, peace-building, and environment protection. Its work is guided by the EU`s Eastern Partnership as the framework for political association and economic integration as well as Austria`s commitment to collaborate with relevant international organisations with the aim of supporting and complementing their efforts, including creating an enabling environment for a peaceful conflict resolution, resilience and people-to-people contacts.

From 2022 - 2024 Austria is implementing a new bilateral Framework Strategy (FS) with Georgia. Aligned with the EU programming period under the new multiannual financial framework 2022-2024, the new FS supports projects and programmes in the following two focus areas:

1. Sustainable rural development and improved livelihood opportunities;

2. Inclusive local development and effective institutions.

In addition, the FS also provides the basis for engagement in conflict-related confidence building measures if windows of opportunities open up and beyond the two specific thematic focus areas and in regions adjacent to the administrative boundary lines.

For successfully implementing the new FS and its objectives under Focus area 2 (incl. the cross-cutting focus on confidence building measures), the Austrian Development Agency is looking for a National Programme Manager (m/f) for Inclusive Local Development. She/he will be locally appointed at the Coordination Office for Technical Cooperation of the Austrian Embassy, Tbilisi.
