Please, briefly describe the CBC activity you wanted to pursue In 2008 the National Assembly of Slovenia adopted the Resolution on International Development Cooperation for the period until 2015, which defines the geographical and conceptual priorities of Slovenia’s development cooperation and determines the mechanisms for its implementation. Among its thematic priorities, environmental issues have an important role, focusing among others on the establishment of an environmental infrastructure, strategies for adaptation to climate change, reduction of greenhouse gas emissions, sustainable use and management of natural resources, the sustainable use of renewable energy sources,  and access to safe drinking water.
In 2009, developmental resources were centralized with approximately one half of the total bilateral development funds allocated to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. This provided resources for the annual programming of international development cooperation, increased coordination, transparency, and efficiency of development cooperation. The centralization allowed for a more concise definition of Slovenia’s geographical priorities, which include Montenegro and Macedonia in the Western Balkans, as the first priority region. The second priority region is Eastern Europe, where Moldova is our partner country. The third priory region in Africa, with Cape Verde as our partner country. In terms of content Slovenian development of programmes and projects are primarily designed to promote good governance and the rule of law.
