10 Years of GIZ
In 2011, a new company was formed: the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH. GIZ is the result of a merger between the Deutscher Entwicklungsdienst (DED) gGmbH, the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Technische Zusammenarbeit (GTZ) GmbH and InWEnt - Internationale Weiterbildung und Entwicklung gGmbH (Capacity Building International, Germany). On behalf of the German Government and its international partners, GIZ works around the globe to shape a future worth living.
Expertise from 60 years of international cooperation
GIZ’s range of services has continually evolved, with new areas of activity being added to its development cooperation portfolio in line with its extended corporate purpose, including stronger cooperation with the European Union and with industrialised nations such as Greece and Germany.
Today, GIZ provides its commissioning parties, clients and partners worldwide with experience and expertise gleaned from 60 years of international education work and international cooperation for sustainable development –‘Made in Germany’ and under one roof.
