Organisation Background


Slovenia became a donor country in 2004 and has been putting the legal and strategic frameworks in place since then. The country adopted the International Development Cooperation of the Republic of Slovenia Act in 2006, which was followed by the Resolution on International Development Cooperation in 2008. The Resolution set out various goals in development co-operation for the country to achieve by 2015. The Resolution is to be updated in order to further guide Slovenian development co-operation. A Special Review of the Slovenian development co-operation programme and systems was conducted in 2012, after which the country was accepted as the 29th member of the OECD DAC. The Evaluation Policy and the Evaluation Guidelines were prepared in 2014 and 2015.


The Evaluation Policy provides a legal framework of the country’s evaluation. The Policy mandates the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA) to function as the National Coordinator of evaluation of development co-operation. Within the MFA, the Directorate for Multilateral Affairs, Development Cooperation and International Law is in charge of evaluation work and implements extensive, strategically important programme and theme-specific evaluations. The mandate covers the evaluation of all Slovenian official development assistance funds.
