The 2015 Act on Official Development Cooperation (Act No. 392/2015 Coll.) establishes the legal and institutional framework for development assistance and is a strong statement of national priority. The Act requires assistance to be delivered in conformity with international principles (particularly the rules of the DAC), EU development policy and Slovak foreign policy and economic priorities. The Act also sets out the long term goals of Slovakia‟s ODA, the planning instruments to be used, the general modalities for ODA, the ODA authorities and the necessary requirements for the establishment of the Slovak Agency for International Development Cooperation (SAIDC).
