Planning sustainably and taking a comprehensive approach – for today and tomorrow
Achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) requires extensive approaches that counter the effects of current crises, while pointing the way forward towards a better future. In this section we shine a spotlight on our work in around 120 countries, which we carry out on behalf of the German Government, European Union and United Nations institutions, governments of other countries and the private sector.
DETERMINED, EVEN IN FRAGILE CONTEXTS
Even under the most difficult conditions, GIZ is working to strengthen states and their societies and government bodies, while ensuring that all people can benefit from development.
GLOBAL HEALTH: LOOKING AT THE BIGGER PICTURE
GIZ has long helped partner countries strengthen their health systems. The COVID-19 pandemic has placed additional stress on these systems and demonstrated that no one is safe until everyone is safe.
GREEN RECOVERY: GREENER AND FAIRER
Green recovery is not just an empty slogan – it is the way forward after the pandemic to build resilient societies through sustainable, socially just and climate-neutral change.
SOCIAL COHESION: EVERYONE IS INCLUDED
Everyone needs prospects, particularly the younger generation. People who are taken seriously and feel themselves to be valued members of society can develop the strength needed to create a better future.
