For a small city with a population of just over 1.5 million, Vienna boasts an impressive number of agencies and organizations working within global development. Devex looks at these organizations — taking into account their headquarters, organization size, funding and budget, and project reach — to highlight the top global development employers in Vienna.

Vienna has ranked highest in the world for “quality of life” in the annual Mercer Quality of Living survey for the ninth year running. As Austria’s political and economic center, the city was also praised for providing resident and international staff with high security, excellent public transportation, and a range of cultural and recreational activities.
