Slovenia became a donor country in 2004 and has been putting the legal and strategic frameworks in place since then. In 2013 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 cooperation. 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.
