German Cooperation

The German Development Cooperation has supported the Southern African Development Community (SADC) Secretariat from 2001 to become a capable facilitator of regional integration and sustainable development through the programme. Working closely with the Secretariat’s leadership and selected Member State institutions, the German Development Cooperation support plays a key role in SADC’s efforts. SADC aims to achieve the following core topics of regional integration:

  • Trade liberalisation
  • Infrastructure
  • Peace and security
  • Food security and natural resources
  • Social development and gender
  • Science and technology development

German engagement has been commissioned by the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) and through providing technical assistance with Deutsche Gesellschaft fur Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH.
