Development Cooperation of the Czech Republic
The Czech development Agency (CzDA) was established by a decision of the Czech Ministry of Foreign Affairs in January 2008. It has taken up activities of the Czech Development Center. CzDA cooperates with the MFA on the establishment of an institutional framework of the Czech development cooperation and actively participates in the creation of development cooperation programs between the Czech Republic and priority countries as well as on the other stages of the project cycle management.
Czech Republic is going to provide assistance through Czech Development Agency's resources to people affected by extensive drought in Ethiopia which has been caused by the El Niño phenomenon. Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Czech Republic, Mr. Lubomír Zaorálek, approved the assistance of 5 million CZK. The assistance will be provided by the World Food Programme (WFP) before the end of 2015.
