GIZ PROFILE Agenda 2030

In September 2015, heads of state and government at the UN Summit in New York adopted the Agenda 2030 for Sustainable Development comprising the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Its 17 goals go far beyond the millennium development goals, which expired at the end of 2015, and they also apply equally to all countries.

AGENDA 2030 Developing solutions worldwide.

GIZ staff work in thematically diverse projects and programmes in widely different countries throughout the world. What do they all have in common? A shared goal – to develop sustainable and effective solutions. In GIZ’s short film, we accompany four employees through one day in their working lives and see what impact they have on the people in our partner countries.
