TOGETHER FOR PEACE AND A BRIGHTER FUTURE
Human security means more than the absence of violence. It encompasses the right of the individual to live in freedom and dignity, free from poverty and fear. When all this is in place, sustainable development can thrive.
People who feel safe have a clear mind and are able to look to the future with optimism. This is why GIZ works with its commissioning parties and partners – countries, local initiatives, businesses and regional organisations – to enable people to live good, peaceful lives around the world and thus create the environment for sustainable development.
Our examples show just some of the diverse range of forms that promoting security and stabilisation can take. For instance, we are supporting Colombia on its difficult path towards implementing the peace agreement on a lasting basis. In Africa, the aim is to prevent conflicts through the clear demarcation of borders while at the same time improving management to speed up cross-border traffic. People also feel safe when they know that they will be well cared for in the event of a medical emergency. And good working conditions for employees in poor countries are another important aspect of security. Young people in particular are central to many of our projects, as beacons of hope and ambassadors for a peaceful future.
