Development Cooperation


Entwicklungszusammenarbeit, © GIZ


International development cooperation has the goal to come closer to the ideal of a world without poverty, conflicts and ecological destruction. Not only a single country, but the world community has to deal with these problems of today. In the framework of its development policy, the German government supports the world community in achieving these goals, also called SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals).

Indonesia is not only a reliable bilateral partner of German development cooperation but –as a G20 member state and emerging country- is becoming an increasingly important regional and international player in that field. Among others, Indonesia’s further development is crucial for the SDGs –especially for the goal of sustainable climate protection- to be achieved. Therefore, trilateral cooperation and the link of bilateral and regional projects play an important role.

Between 2010 and 2012, Germany committed the amount of € 520 mio. to Indonesia. In the latest government-to-government negotiations in 2013, further € 50.5 mio. were committed for bilateral cooperation, € 7 mio. thereof for financial cooperation (FC) realized by the German development bank KfW and € 43.5 mio. for technical cooperation (TC) to be implemented by GIZ. In 2014, another € 175 mio. of FC were committed. Government-to-government negotiations will be held again in 2015.

In the framework of the latest negotiations, the following key areas of cooperation were determined:

Daneben werden in Indonesien auch Maßnahmen der humanitären Hilfe umgesetzt sowie Programme der politischen Stiftungen, der Kirchen und der Zivilgesellschaft gefördert. Insgesamt lagen die Leistungen der deutschen Entwicklungszusammenarbeit in Indonesien (sog. ODA) im Jahr 2012 bei € 48,9 Mio.
