German Cooperation

Both Germany’s official development cooperation and the work done by German development NGOs have an excellent worldwide reputation. All over the world “Made in Germany” is a synonym for quality – and that goes also for German development projects abroad. The new logo is intended to show how extensive and multi-faceted the German Government’s activities are not only in development cooperation but also in the areas of humanitarian aid, crisis prevention and conflict management, democracy-building and others.
