The concept: Entrepreneurship meets sustainable development
Developing and emerging countries around the world are facing major challenges, for example in the health sector, in energy supply, in the sustainable use of natural resources or in coping with climate change. Often there is not only a lack of capital, but also little technical and operational know-how. Skilled workers are scarce and environmental and social standards often need improvement.
At the same time, many countries in Africa, Asia, Latin America or Southeast Europe offer growing potential for local and international companies: For example, in the production of raw materials and intermediate products for global value chains, but increasingly also as production locations for the local market. Private investments and local entrepreneurial activity create skilled jobs, local added value and innovations. This also creates prospects for the future.
The approach of develoPPP is to support precisely these processes and make them sustainable.

Achieving more together
As a global funding programme, develoPPP is available worldwide in many developing and emerging countries and is deliberately open to various sectors, topics and approaches. Decisions on the funding of concrete measures are made within the framework of regular idea competitions, to which interested companies can submit their ideas.
The financing and implementation of a develoPPP project is carried out jointly with one of the two experienced public implementing partners: DEG Impulse gGmbH or Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH. The share of public funding in the total expenditure is up to 50 percent.
Funding through develoPPP requires that long-term business objectives meet sustainable developmental benefits. Exclusively commercial funding is not possible, nor is support for purely charitable projects.
