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. The new programme will, on one side, provide consultancy, networking, expertise and capacity building for the TVET system reform in Indonesia on national level, based on key aspects of the German approach to TVET (such as strong cooperation with industry, learning in the work-process and recognized standards). On the other side, ISED works on sectoral and regional level. As a first sector and region in this context, ISED will promote sustainable tourism development in Lombok by enhancing both private-public cooperation in TVET, supporting inclusive business models and linking and matching between supply and demand of human resources in that sector and region - as well as ensuring the transfer of best practices and experiences to the national level.
