Slovakia’s development program is administered by the Slovak Agency for International Development Cooperation (Slovak Aid) in Slovakia’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Several additional Slovak ministries participate in the country’s budget for development assistance.
Slovakia’s priorities in development cooperation are building democratic institutions and a market environment, and creating social and technical infrastructure. Within these broad themes, Slovak Aid supports development activities that include aspects of environmental protection, agriculture and food security, water management, waste management, and energy.
