Constantyet changing

GIZ is steady and strong, but continues to evolve at the same time. It is reliable in that it remains steadfastly true to its principles, but also curious about new possibilities. This is the only way it can keep up with the shifts and movements of a changing world. Working in conjunction with our commissioning parties and partners, this approach has enabled us to make substantial achievements in recent years and we are several steps closer to the objectives of the 2030 Agenda.

However, the world continues to move on, different forces ebb and flow, and new challenges emerge. This is why we have to be proactive in addressing the needs of the future and continue to develop our capabilities. To that end we adopted a new Corporate Strategy in 2019, which will guide us during the period 2020 to 2022. It serves as a compass, mapping the route to maintaining and optimising GIZ’s greatest strength: our capacity to implement effective projects. Or put another way, our ability to carry out demanding commissions in the field of international cooperation rapidly and successfully, even under the most challenging conditions, thereby improving people’s lives all around the globe. Our vision steering us on this journey is: we work to shape a future worth living around the world.
