GIZ has been implementing projects to promote economic, ecological, and social development in the Philippines on behalf of the German Government since the 1970s. Some 70 seconded staff and 170 national personnel are currently working there for us.
Our work in the Philippines concentrates on the areas of peace and security, climate change and biodiversity, and economic and human development (agriculture, urban infrastructure, employment, microinsurance, and health in schools).
Several regional programmes are also based in the Philippines and are managed by GIZ from Manila. These include programmes supporting sustainable urban development in Asia, social protection, health in schools, and biodiversity in the ASEAN area. Some regional programmes based in other countries implement their activities in the Philippines.
