About develoPPP.de

Whether the aim is to provide training for local employees, promote the use of climate-friendly technologies or improve social standards at production facilities – the objectives of private enterprises and actors involved in development cooperation often overlap.

develoPPP.de was set up by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) to foster the involvement of the private sector at the point where business opportunities and development policy initiatives intersect.

The Program

Through the develoPPP.de program, the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) provides companies investing in developing and emerging countries with financial and, if required, also professional support. The company is responsible for covering at least half of the overall costs; BMZ contributes up to a maximum of EUR 200,000. These development partnerships with the private sector may last up to a maximum of three years and cover a wide variety of areas and topics – from eco-certification in Serbia to vocational training in India.

BMZ has appointed three public partners to implement the programme on its behalf:   DEG – Deutsche Investitions- und Entwicklungsgesellschaft mbH, Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH and sequa gGmbH. Companies taking part in develoPPP.de always cooperate with one of these public partners. Since the launch of the programme in 1999, DEG, GIZ and sequa have realised over 1,500 development partnerships with German and European companies.

Companies are invited to register their interest with DEG, GIZ or sequa by participating in one of the ideas competition held four times a year. These are open to all German and European companies and their subsidiaries in developing countries and emerging economies.

Development partnerships with the private sector that have the potential to achieve outstanding development benefits and involve several countries may receive more generous funding beyond the scope of the ideas competitions as Strategic Development Partnerships.
