Green innovation centres
Fostering innovation in the agriculture and food sector
As part of its special initiative ONE WORLD – No Hunger, the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) has established green innovation centres in 13 partner countries for German development cooperation. The aim of the centres is to use innovation in the agriculture and food sector to increase regional food supplies, boost the income of smallholders, and to create more employment opportunities, particularly in the area of food processing. The Development Ministry will provide a total of 138.5 million euros for this project by the end of 2019. Background information on the green innovation centres can be found here.
