100,000 to 2 million euros in project funding
Up to 50% public funding share of the total expenditure
Know-how, competent support and networks in over 60 countries
Flexible funding in developing and emerging countries
The develoPPP Classic funding instrument can be used in over 60 developing and emerging countries around the globe (see: develoPPP Classic country list) and is deliberately flexible in its content. Supported projects can be located in very different sectors and thematic areas and range from the training of local experts and piloting of innovative technologies and demonstration plants to the sustainable expansion of supply chains and the improvement of environmental and social standards. What all develoPPP Classic projects have in common is that they combine a long-term business interest with a sustainable developmental benefit.
Decisions on the funding of specific projects are made in quarterly idea competitions. Suitable projects are funded by the BMZ with between 100,000 and 2 million euros, thus covering up to 50% of the total costs. During implementation, your company will be accompanied by one of the two implementing partners: DEG Impulse gGmbH or Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH.
