To be able to operate flexibly and remain agile in times of constant change, new beginnings and fragmentation, GIZ needs to enhance its existing skill set. Nurturing existing strengths, developing new ones.
This is how we maintain our capacity to implement effective projects – now and in the future.
We have been working to shape a future worth living around the world for more than 50 years. Thanks to this experience, we are a strong partner in international cooperation in over 1,600 projects in more than 120 countries. Commissioning parties and partners place their trust in us so that together we can bring about long-term positive change. They value our unwavering reliability.
The challenges our projects pose are many and varied; no two days are the same. Even in the face of constant change, in times of uncertainty and fragility, we remain excited about the future. Curious about people, their circumstances and their needs, we apply ourselves to new challenges. We combine our long-established capacity to implement effective projects with new ideas, technologies and a great deal of flexibility.
