The Good Financial Governance in Africa programme is commissioned by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) and co-financed by the European Union (EU).
Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development
The German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) is GIZ’s main commissioning party. BMZ is one of two ministries representing GIZ’s sole shareholder, the Federal Republic of Germany, on GIZ’s Supervisory Board, which is chaired by Friedrich Kitschelt, State Secretary at BMZ.
The Ministry commissions GIZ to implement advisory projects that enhance the capacities of individuals, organisations and societies to improve their living conditions through the efficient and sustainable use of resources and achieve their goals. The inputs provided by Germany are a contribution to, not a substitute for, projects and programmes which are planned or are already being implemented by the partners. This means that GIZ’s partners also contribute to the measures – by covering operating costs or salaries, for example. When working on behalf of BMZ, GIZ attaches priority to ensuring that the projects can continue after funding from the German Government has ceased.
