Marshall Plan in action

Logo: Marshall Plan with Africa

The BMZ is in the process of rethinking its cooperation with the countries of Africa. From the Marshall Plan with Africa a new partnership between Africa and Europe can now emerge, which goes far beyond the traditional, project-based development cooperation.

The aim of the BMZ is to strengthen the development capacity of African states. Because many of the global challenges facing all of us can only be tackled with a strong Africa that generates jobs and wealth through sustainable economic growth. Here you can see some examples of how the Marshall Plan with Africa is being implemented.
