Partnership with the Slovak Republic
UNDP has partnered with the Slovak Republic since the early 2000s - through the Ministries of Finance (MoF) and Foreign Affairs (MFA) – to advise programme countries on their development policies, help them manage and evaluate projects, channel small grants and manage professional exchange schemes.
What we’ve achieved:
- UNDP and the Slovak Ministry of Foreign Affairs improved reporting and monitoring and created a new strategy for development cooperation with Moldova. We continue to work on improving the MFA’s aid effectiveness.
- The Public Finance for Development (PFD) programme is contributing to public finance reform efforts in Moldova, Montenegro, Ukraine and Serbia.
- UNDP and the Ministry of Finance are now engaging Slovak businesses in the country’s bilateral aid, through the Rozvojmajstri platform which helps them identify opportunities in emerging markets.
- Over the last three years, the Ministry of Finance has invested US$6 million with UNDP to pilot innovative solutions using open data, alternative finance mechanisms and new technologies in Europe and Central Asia and other regions. One of the components of this project focuses on tackling urban problems.
