Karte Philippinen

The Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) has been implementing projects to promote economic, ecological and social development in the Philippines on behalf of the German Government since the 1970s. Some 70 seconded staff and 190 national personnel are currently working there for us.

Our main commissioning parties are the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) and the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Building and Nuclear Safety (BMUB). Commissions also come from international clients including the European Union, the Asian Development Bank and AusAID.

Our work in the Philippines concentrates on the areas of peace and security, the environment, rural development and climate change. The main geographical focus is on the Caraga region on the island of Mindanao in the southern Philippines and the Visayas archipelago.

Several regional programmes are also based in the Philippines and are managed by GIZ from Manila. These include programmes supporting sustainable urban development in Asia, social protection, health in schools and biodiversity in the ASEAN area.
