GIZ supports the German Government in achieving its objectives in the field of international cooperation for sustainable development. In addition to its main commissioning party, the German Development Ministry (BMZ), GIZ is also commissioned by other federal ministries, their subordinate authorities and federal state governments.
We have many years of experience in implementing projects and programmes in a wide spectrum of fields around the globe. We operate primarily on behalf of BMZ, but are also commissioned by other government departments including the Federal Foreign Office, the Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety, the Federal Ministry of Defence and the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy. GIZ also works for other German federal ministries and their subordinate authorities, and for German federal states and local authorities.
GIZ carries out customised projects and extensive programmes worldwide for its commissioning parties, with a focus on sustainable development. We also advise our clients on a range of topics. Alongside economic cooperation and development, other priority areas include international climate action, civilian crisis prevention and improving general conditions in partner countries in the areas of economic policy and energy policy.
GIZ also provides its commissioning parties with support and advice in order to boost the effectiveness of their projects through additional funding from the European Union and other international donors, the Green Climate Fund and companies and foundations.
