GIZ, acting on behalf of the German Federal Government and other clients, supports partner countries in implementing the Framework Convention on Climate Change. It aims to reduce emissions of greenhouse gases and adapt to the consequences of climate change. This calls for a transformative change that must be strengthened by the combined support of policy-makers, civil society and the private sector. GIZ advises on useful approaches and investments. It also implements climate policy guidelines through a wide range of practical measures in the partner countries.
