GIZ carries out water projects in around 50 different countries, acting at the municipal, national, regional, and global levels. GIZ teams often work on the ground with ministries, regulatory authorities, regional governments, water associations, and also directly with water utility companies. GIZ develops forward-looking concepts for the water sector in cooperation with UN organisations, the Federal Institute for Geosciences and Natural Resources (BGR), KfW Entwicklungsbank, and other development banks and institutions. Along with approaches aimed at sustainable water supply and sanitation, GIZ’s work also includes water resources management as well as issues that cut across sectors.
Around 550 of GIZ’s water experts advise partners around the globe: this includes 100 deployed German experts,
80 development workers, 25 integrated experts, more than 300 locally employed experts on-site and around 30 People at the headquarters in Germany. All of their work centres on building capacity and skills in GIZ’s partner countries. This work includes providing advisory services, establishing training and education systems, developing private and public organisations and companies, and helping to institutionalise water supply in a country so that it is affordable, efficient and self-financing in the long term.
