One of the strengths of the APPEAR programme is that it is highly relevant at both the international and Austrian level since it is aligned with international and Austrian frameworks/strategies in the area of higher education cooperation in development. Moreover, its added values and basic principles support a successful implementation at project and programme level. Additionally, they are in accordance with good practices of other donors’ programmes in higher education and research. In this regard, the programme is also a pioneer in tertiary education sector cooperation as alignment with the respective ADC country strategies, and the consideration of rights and needs of persons with disabilities have been included as added values.
