Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH is looking back over a successful business year in 2016. However, this also shows the magnitude of future challenges.

With business volume of EUR 2.4 billion, Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH can look back on a successful business year in 2016. At its annual press conference in Berlin on 17 July, Management Board Chair Tanja Gönner reported an increase of EUR 220 million from the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ). At EUR 1.9 billion, BMZ provides the largest share of the budget of GIZ, which is active on behalf of the Federal Republic of Germany in over 120 countries.

Between 2010 and 2015, GIZ has supplied 45 million people in over 120 countries with drinking water, enabled 16 million people to have access to sanitation, created health services for over 120 million people, and organised health protection for over 300 million people.
