Storms, droughts and extreme weather: the poorest regions are hit hardest by the effects of climate change. As the main sources of global warming, the industrialised countries must assume responsibility. We support climate protection and adaptation in our partner countries and examine the climatic impact all of our programmes.
Managing natural resources
Soil, water, flora and fauna are vital resources for people everywhere. We advise our partners on how to protect natural resources. We focus on preserving forests and biodiversity but also on combating desertification and land degradation
Urban and industrial environmental management
Industrialisation and urbanisation lead to immense resource consumption and severe environmental problems, which have a negative impact on people's lives. We advise our partners on how to design and implement an effective environmental and climate management strategy that aims to channel resources efficiently to achieve growth.
Environmental policy and institutional development
Our economic activities are overloading ecosystems and resources while poverty and social problems are intensifying. We try to incorporate environmental concerns into development cooperation and help our partners design a modern and preventative environmental policy.
