We have worked closely with the state government of Baden-Wuerttemberg for many years, which is supporting our work, among other things, by providing the premises in Mannheim. The State Office shares this building with the International Education Centre and the division "Human Capacity Development in TVET for Germany (Technical Vocational Education & Training).
Baden-Wuerttemberg is a centre for innovation, technology and business. The State Office contributes to sustainable development in its partner countries through its range of capacity building programmes, helping fulfil the goals of Agenda 21 from the Johannesburg Rio process.
Our focal points in Baden-Wuerttemberg are sustainable management and other core issues addressed by GIZ worldwide and supported by the State Office Baden-Wuerttemberg through training and dialogue programmes. The centre focuses primarily on reform countries in Central and Eastern Europe and German development policy partner countries.
The State Office Baden-Wuerttemberg is also charged with linking people from the business community and civil society in the region. We support the work of the Carl Duisberg Gesellschaft’s Regional Business Group as part of this. We also advise young professionals from Germany interested in professional training abroad.
