GIZ Ethiopia: Your Partner in the Long Run
2014 marks 50 years of development cooperation between Ethiopia and Germany. What does this cooperation look like nowadays? „GIZ Ethiopia – Your Partner in the Long Run“ provides an insight into current activities. The film depicts GIZ’s bilateral programmes done on behalf of the German government and the projects of GIZ International Services (IS). The former focus on the priority areas sustainable land management and labour-market oriented education. Besides, GIZ is also working in the realms of renewable energies, urban governance, nationwide quality standards and conflict management. At the core of GIZ’s work is capacity development in order to qualify people to manage their projects in a sustainable way. This is also true for GIZ IS. This business unit of GIZ works for various clients. In Ethiopia it has managed the construction of 13 universities on behalf of the Ethiopian government. These were built with local companies thus qualifying them for future construction activities.
