Slovenia – the Development Assistance Committee’s 29th Member

 

The OECD DAC welcomes Slovenia as its 29th member

Slovenia has made considerable progress in building-up its development co-operation programme in recent years. It has put in place the legal and strategic framework, created an institutional structure, ensured it has the staff to manage its development flows and set up a monitoring and evaluation system. Slovenia has also managed to maintain its budget for official development assistance (ODA) at the level of 0.13% of its gross national income (GNI) despite a strong economic downturn. In 2012, Slovenia’s ODA totaled USD 58 million, of which 67 % was channeled through multilateral institutions, mostly the European Union.

At its meeting on 3 December 2013, the DAC invited Slovenia to join the Committee. Slovenia accepted this invitation the same day in a letter addressed to the OECD Secretary General, in which it pledged to fulfil the obligations of DAC membership.

Slovenia’s activities in the area of human security and post-conflict rehabilitation  

Mine action has always ranked high among the thematic priorities of Slovenia’s humanitarian and post conflict assistance. In 1998, the Slovenian government established Enhancing Human Security (ITF), initially with the purpose of helping Bosnia and Herzegovina to implement its peace agreement and to support post conflict rehabilitation. Later, ITF was given tasks related to eliminating landmines and explosive remnants of war, as well as addressing the issue of illicit ownership and use of small arms and light weapons, in South East Europe and other regions in the world. Over the past 15 years, ITF has become an internationally recognised and respected organisation, raising over USD 373 million in donations, including a contribution of USD 10 million from the Slovenian government. These funds have enabled ITF to implement more than 2 800 projects to clear 122 million square meters of mine-infested areas, provide medical treatment for 1 195 mine victims and deliver mine awareness programmes to some 82 000 people. ITF will continue to work towards enhanced human security, in close co-operation with the Slovenian government and other countries (http://www.itf-fund.si/).
