The Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) has been advising the United Arab Emirates (UAE) since the 1990s.
GIZ’s priority areas in the UAE are the following:
- infrastructure and the environment.
In the past, GIZ has mainly advised the Government of the UAE on the topic of education in order to modernise the national labour market and lay the foundations for lasting economic success, because people with a broad range of skills are required to place the country’s economy on a broader footing. A large number of projects have also been implemented in the priority areas water and sanitation, the environment and infrastructure. The main commissioning parties are the ministries in the UAE and other government institutions. The financier, commissioning party and recipient of the services are usually identical.
