The Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Building and Nuclear Safety (BMUB) works closely with GIZ and commissions the company to implement various bilateral and regional programmes and projects, mainly within the scope of the International Climate Initiative (ICI).

In thematic terms, these programmes and projects focus on promoting a low-carbon economy, adaptation to climate change, and the conservation and sustainable management of natural carbon sinks (REDD+).
Furthermore, on behalf of BMUB, GIZ implements projects to conserve biological diversity and, together with KfW Development Bank, supports the German Climate Technology Initiative (DKTI).

GIZ also advises BMUB on matters relating to the development of the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA), the expansion of global CO2 trading, and the implementation of the Mediterranean Solar Plan, and assists the Ministry to secure EU and third-party funding and implement the relevant projects. The Ministry can access expertise from GIZ at any time.
