The Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH is an international cooperation enterprise for sustainable development with worldwide operations. Its corporate objective is to improve people’s living conditions on a sustainable basis. Since 1957, German Development Cooperation with Indonesia has been evolving steadily, adjusting its course to match Indonesia's development needs. GIZ has been working in Indonesia since 1975, mainly on behalf of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) and other German Ministries, as well as other development partners and the private sector.
In the context of the bilateral development cooperation between the Governments of Germany and Indonesia, the new bilateral programme “Innovation and Investment for Inclusive Sustainable Economic Development (ISED)” will assist the Government of Indonesia and the private sector in strengthening the capacities of private and public actors for promoting inclusive and sustainable employment in Indonesia. It combines support for technical and vocational education and training (TVET) with those for private sector development (PSD) in a holistic approach.
In addition to working in the sector of tourism, a newly started DeveloPPP.de measure will be linked to ISED, namely “Improving the economical and technical competence of pepper farmers in Bangka” – or in short “Pepper Bangka”. The project is a DeveloPPP.de measure in cooperation with Verstegen Spices and Sauces BV. The objective is to strengthen the economic and technical competences of 1000 smallholder farmers in Bangka Island, enhance their productivity, improve their economic decision making power and overall enable them to comply with European and Japanese food safety standards.
Furthermore, more and more GIZ programmes engage into activities related to agricultural development and agribusiness. Engaging public partners hereby is key to ensure the sustainability of results and to align measures with government promotion programmes. Therefore, in the midterm, the position might be shared with another private sector cooperation project in the field of agriculture.
