Rural development

We advise our partners on agricultural and rural development policy. Farmers and associations are involved in decisions and organisational deficits are addressed. This is the only way to give poor people in rural areas access to land, water, loans and training.

A promising harvest
Cocoa is an important product in western and central Africa. Together with various partners, GIZ has developed a training programme to help smallholders farm their land sustainably.
On course for a better future
Local authorities in Ukraine can now decide how they spend their money themselves.
Building up hope
Simple ideas are turning around the lives of refugees and local people in northern Iraq following the end of terror in the country.
Learning for life
Youth unemployment in Tunisia is high. A partnership is helping young people to get the training they need.
Welcoming the world
Until recently, Theth was a virtually deserted village in the Albanian Alps. But life has returned with a hiking trail.
Sowing the seeds of success
In Chad, locals and refugees have to get by on very little. With seeds and training, it is hoped that harvests will improve.
