GIZ (Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit) (Indonesia)

Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit


The German Organisation for International Cooperation (GIZ) has been working in Indonesia since 1975 on behalf of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ). 

Following an agreement concluded in October 2007, GIZ is currently concentrating on the following three priority areas: climate change, private sector development, and improving governance. It manages a number of programmes under these priority areas together with regional bodies such as ASEAN and relevant government ministries. For instance, the Forests and Climate Change Programme (FORCLIME) is aiding the Ministry of Forestry with the establishment of the regulatory and institutional framework required for REDD+, as well as supporting local authorities set up plans and strategies for forestry management and REDD+ projects. Through its policy advice for environment and climate change (PAKLIM) it advises the Ministry of Environment, supporting the Indonesian government with the formulation of its climate change mitigation and adaptation strategies. 

At the project level, GIZ is currently providing technical assistance and funding (together with the German Development Bank; KfW) to three pilot REDD+ projects on Kalimatan, committing 27 million euros over six years (2010-2016).
