German develop­ment policy works with 60 partner countries. Each country faces its own spe­cific cha­llenges, which is reflected in the strategic coope­ration with the countries and regions.

Here you can find information on the new orientation of our development cooperation (as at June 2020).

With our reform strategy "BMZ 2030" we introduced new partner­ship categories in June 2020. We are not ending coope­ration with any country, but are reorienting a number of states. We will continue to support people threatened by hunger and need in all countries.
