Getting to know your GIZ country office is a good entry point for understanding and accessing German government funding opportunities. Details on local representation of GIZ staff can be found at: https:// www.giz.de/en/worldwide/asia. html.
It is also interesting to note that from 2008 to 2013 around EUR 300 million went towards projects in South Asia, Southeast Asia, and the Pacific.
The projects are selected based on a variety of criteria, including the needs of partner countries, fund availability, internal foreign and development policy criteria and any existing multilateral and bilateral cooperation with the German government.
Other key selection criteria for fund approval include assessing the aptitude of project partners – in terms of competence, capacity and experience – and determining the suitability of the project – in relation to transformative impacts, sustainability of outcomes, and self-financing and/ or third-party financing opportunities.
