Digital technologies offer great opportunities for GIZ too. They can help combat global challenges such as poverty, corruption or insufficient access to education. And they can also boost the effectiveness of internal work processes and cross-border cooperation. 

For more effective cooperation

Digital change has already transformed not only international project work with our partners, but also our work processes and business practices. 

  • With state-of-the-art cloud services, all employees around the world have mobile access to important information in real time. 
  • By evaluating integrated project data, we can boost our innovative capacity, meaning more people around the world can benefit from our work. 
  • We network business processes intelligently and can supply GIZ’s country offices with the materials and equipment they need for their work more quickly and effectively. 
  • Using tailored digital solutions, apps and a collaboration platform, we create effective and mobile working environments. 

New digital solutions for sustainable development and political participation

Secure smartphones, online health services, Industry 4.0 – we are currently supporting digital innovations in more than 200 international cooperation projects. After all, digital change creates extra potential for advances in development. Nowhere more so than in fragile states and disadvantaged regions – and for population groups that have been excluded from progress so far.
