The partnership idea: Joining forces for success

PPP stands for public-private partnership. Within such partnerships, also known as development partnerships with the private sector ( develoPPP ), GIZ cooperates with businesses and business associations in developing and transition countries.

The PPP programme combines the respective strengths of public and private partners: PPP projects are planned, financed and implemented jointly. Private companies in PPPs profit from GIZ's contacts, experience and its global network of experts. At the same time, private sector involvement helps achieve development policy goals by creating jobs, introducing technological innovations in developing and transition countries, and improving production processes. By investing in people and the environment, businesses also ensure their own commercial success.
