4   Link   German Technical Cooperation (GTZ)
German technical cooperation has been active in the Pacific region for about 25 years. On behalf of German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) and in collaboration with the Secretariat of the Pacific Community (SPC), GTZ is currently implementing a programme that focuses on climate protection and the sustainable use of natural resources. GTZ can call on many years of experience cooperating with SPC in the field of natural resources management. Valuable lessons were learned through the Pacific-German Regional Forestry Programme (PGRFP), which promoted sustainable forestry in the region from 1994 to 2008. These can now be used by other countries and integrated into the new climate protection programme. The German-Pacific programme supports the region in the implementation of major strategies such as the Pacific Islands Framework for Action on Climate Change (PIFACC) or the National Adaptation Programme of Action (NAPA). The programme also works intensively with other donors, especially the European Union (EU), the Australian Agency for International Development (AusAid), the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) and the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP). The programme office is in Suva, Fiji. The programme is assigned regionally to the GTZ office in Manila, Philippines. Copyright: German Technical Cooperation (GTZ)
