Working worldwide for a future worth living – that is what motivates us every single day in cooperation with our commissioning parties and partners at local level. Annually aggregated results data is recorded to process and communicate the success of our work clearly and transparently.

By awarding commissions to GIZ, the commissioning parties pursue clear goals, and we regularly examine the extent to which these goals have been achieved. We also collect aggregated results data, which demonstrates retrospectively the impact that our efforts have had across projects and countries in particular areas, such as water supply and vocational education. The results data is collected using aggregation indicators based on the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and is subsequently summarised at global level. As the data is publicly available, it also supports international efforts to increase transparency and share knowledge and experience. In addition, we use the aggregated results data to enter into dialogue with our partners and commissioning parties, and with interested members of the public.

GIZ collected results data around the globe for the sixth time in 2021. A total of 1,115 projects – more than 95 per cent of all the projects surveyed – reported on the results of their work.

High-quality, accessible health care is hugely important: there need to be hospitals and other institutions in which patients are treated well and efficiently and items such as medicines and vaccines are available. GIZ provides health care facilities with advice and support on training and continuing education for skilled professionals, more efficient hospital management and better clinical services at appropriate costs. In 2021, more than 31,000 health care facilities were able to enhance their performance and increase their capacity. As a result, more people have been able to benefit from good medical care.

Greenhouse gas emissions need to be significantly reduced throughout the world in order to slow down climate change. These climate killers can be reduced by devising sustainable transport strategies and using renewable energy, for example. The production of green hydrogen is also regarded to be an important part of an emission-free future. By providing a variety of advisory services, GIZ managed to reduce greenhouse gas emissions (in tCO2e/year) by the equivalent of more than 5.4 million tonnes of CO2 in 2021.

We are committed to promoting political consensus-building and decision-making processes across the globe. This includes measures on urban development, establishing fair budget and land use planning, transparent accountability and much more. Participation in these kinds of processes is an important element in the interaction between local government authorities and the population. In 2021, as a result of our work, more than 920,000 citizens were able to play an active part in events in their home country, voice their opinions and suggest solutions, or even be given the power to make decisions, for example concerning participatory budgeting.
