We want to rethink development in a digital world. The focus is on combating poverty and hunger and on healthy people in a healthy environment. The BMZ sees itself as a transformation agency that promotes the global transformation towards a sustainable, climate- and nature-friendly economy, while at the same time strengthening peace, freedom and human rights.

Our pages at www.bmz-digital.global.de present the policy initiatives that support partner countries in achieving these goals and provide an overview of digital solutions with which German development cooperation addresses the challenges of global development and responds to the monumental challenges of our world through technologies and international cooperation.

The policy initiatives presented here are initiated by the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ). Technical development cooperation is implemented in the partner countries by the Gesellschaft für internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) and specialised agencies, in particular the Federal Institute for Geosciences and Natural Resources (BGR) and the Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt (PTB). Financial development cooperation is provided by KfW Development Bank.
