Climate, environment, management of natural resources

Conserving natural resources is a basic requirement for sustainable development and improving the quality of human life. To reverse the trend towards resource degradation, we need to give greater priority to ecological principles.

GIZ assists its partners in identifying the wide range of causes of environmental risks. It helps modernise environmental policy at all levels, advises on regional environmental cooperation and develops strategies to embed environmental protection in other areas of policy.

Global concerns such as climate protection, preserving biodiversity, protecting forests and combating desertification are a challenge to the community of nations. GIZ supports processes for developing the international environmental regime, and advises its partners in implementing this.

In anchor countries and emerging nations, GIZ disseminates concepts for resource efficiency and recycling. It assists developing countries in decentralising management of natural resources, to ensure greater efficiency and closer orientation to local needs.

With our experience in a wide range of countries, our technical competence, experience in moderation and methodologies, know-how on organisational development, environmental communication and conflict management, we are a partner you can count on.
