Implementing Organisations

The BMZ contracts the implementing organisations with the concrete realisation of the development-policy projects and programmes of the German government.

The tasks of these organisations include:

  • Implementing Financial and Technical Cooperation projects

  • Preparing and seconding German experts and volunteers

  • Providing vocational training to specialists
    and executives from partner countries.

KfW┬áEntwicklungsbank and the Deut­sche In­vesti­tions- und Ent­wicklungs­gesellschaft (DEG), a subsidiary of the KfW Group, are responsible for Financial Cooperation.

The Centrum für internationale Migration und Entwicklung (CIM) is in charge of placing experts in partner countries.

There are other, specialised implementing organisations of Technical Cooperation, such as the Federal Institute for Geosciences and Natural Resources (BGR) or the National Metrology Institute (PTB).

The individual implementing organisations have developed highly specialised skills, and cooperate in their work in partner countries.
