The Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) has been working in Madagascar on behalf of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) since 1982.
GIZ’s engagement in Madagascar currently focuses on the following priority areas:
- Conservation and sustainable use of natural resources
- Renewable energy
- Climate change resilience in agriculture
GIZ also advises Madagascar on improving climate change resilience through the development of value chains, with a focus on agricultural production and processing. A further priority is to build the municipalities’ capacities, improve their efficiency as service providers and safeguard their financial resources.
