When it comes to investments and financing, interaction with the right partners is crucial. We help you to identify suitable programmes and advise you on your local projects.
Programs and Initiatives
develoPPP.de is aimed at companies that invest in developing and emerging countries and want to shape their entrepreneurial commitment in a sustainable way. With develoPPP.de they receive financial and, if desired, professional support. The company bears at least half of the total costs, to which the BMZ contributes up to 200,000 euros. These so-called development partnerships with the private sector can last up to three years and are based in a wide variety of sectors and topics - from A for "wastewater management" to Z for "certifications".
Within the framework of develoPPP.de, companies always cooperate with one of the three public partners that implement the programme on behalf of BMZ: DEG - Deutsche Investitions- und Entwicklungsgesellschaft mbH, Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH and sequagGmbH. Since the start of the programme in 1999, DEG, GIZ and sequa have implemented more than 1,500 development partnerships together with German and European industry.
How to apply
Four times a year, companies can submit an expression of interest in so-called idea competitions to DEG, GIZ or sequa. All German and European companies as well as their subsidiaries in developing and emerging countries can take part.
Development partnerships with the private sector that have the potential to achieve outstanding developmental benefits and encompass several countries can be funded more extensively as strategic development partnerships outside the ideas competitions.
You can find further information on the website develoPPP.de.
