Multilateral FDC


The multilateral IDC of the MLSA consists first of all in mandatory (budgetary) as well as voluntary (extra-budgetary) contributions to the budget of IGOs, which directly implement the development projects, potentially with the participation of Czech experts.

International Labour Organisation (ILO)

Guaranteeing the overall cooperation CZ-ILO, the MLSA most frequently cooperates with the International Labour Organisation (ILO) within the UN system.


Another form of the multilateral IDC of the MLSA is the participation on the decision-making processes of international governmental organisations.

European Union (EU)

As for the EU, the MLSA mostly cooperates indirectly, i.e. comments on documents discussed within the thematic as well as geographic Working Groups of the Council of the EU/European Commission dealing with development issues, which are attended by the representatives of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (Headquarters or Permanent Mission in Brussels).

In case of an issue belonging to its competence, the MLSA participates directly, i.e. attends the meetings of the respective working bodies. So far, it has been the case of 2 ad hoc Working Groups established by the European Commission as to consult informally the Member States on development-related issues on early stage of the legislative process, i.e. before the submission of the official proposal. The MLSA has participated twice on meetings of 2 recently established WG on employment and development, and WG on children and development.

Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD)

The MLSA participates on the work of the Development Assistance Committee (DAC) of the OECD.
