We work with businesses, civil society actors and research institutions, fostering successful interaction between development policy and other policy fields and areas of activity. Our main commissioning party is the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ). The commissioning parties and cooperation partners all place their trust in GIZ, and we work with them to generate ideas for political, social and economic change, to develop these into concrete plans and to implement them. Since we are a public-benefit federal enterprise, German and European values are central to our work.

Project
Geographical focus: 

Pro-poor REDD benefit-sharing schemes incentivize reduction of forest emissions by safeguarding livelihoods of forest communities. This project fills a gap by building capacity and modeling benefit-sharing schemes for REDD activities. Aligned with the workplan of the REDD-Plus Partnership, it scales up actions needed for national REDD strategies under the Cancun Agreement.

Project
Geographical focus: 

The project targets efforts to preserve the largest contiguous tropical forest complex in the world in three countries with areas located within the so-called Guiana Shield (Guyana, Surinam and Brazil). To this end, the project supports comprehensive conservation area management in the Brazilian states of Amapá and Pará. In Guyana and Surinam, inventory analyses are being conducted to quantify carbon, biodiversity and deforestation factors to provide a foundation for developing national REDD demonstration projects.

Project
Geographical focus: 

LAMA-I will support Indonesia’s global leadership in reducing land-based emissions through an integrated NAMA/REDD+ approach by strengthening capacity for local governments to combine development and spatial planning and to synergize climate-change mitigation and adaptation actions through multiple stakeholder negotiations. A recent Presidential Decree mandates all local government levels to develop plans as part of Indonesia's NAMA, but capacity to do so is unevenly distributed.

Project
Geographical focus: 

The establishment of a rural cadastre registry contributes to the clarification of property and usage rights for natural ressources. This constitues the legal framework which is necessary for investments in Benin's agriculture sector.

Somalie

Somalia is the longest known case in modern times of a country whose central state has ceased to exist for many years. Although Somalia is often said to be a country in chaos and anarchy, a new form of social organization emerged here some time ago. Indeed, many Somalis appear to have adapted well to their country's statelessness.

The relationship between urban and rural areas has undergone great change in recent years. It is now often difficult to clearly define the borders between the two; instead we find a continuum ranging from agricultural zones to suburbs, informal settlements and urban centers. But do countries and development cooperation policies have the instruments needed to promote a dynamic and balanced development of urban and rural areas and open up opportunities for the people who live there?

Global

The United Nations Convention to Combat Desertification (UNCCD) is one of the three conventions agreed at the 1992 Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro. But from the very outset it has led a marginal existence, because industrialized countries feel far less concerned with desertification than developing countries. Moreover, the Convention?s targets are not binding and are open to a variety of interpretations by the Parties.The conflicting interests of environmental and
development policy are weakening its position further.
