If we are to overcome the global challenges of today and tomorrow, we need to work together: to pool our strengths, learn from our experiences and find proven solutions for a more sustainable approach to our environment. GIZ’s projects connecting Ghana and North Rhine-Westphalia (NRW) show how successful cooperation for sustainable development can look.
CoInnovation GHN X GER: The winning tandems
The winners of the innovation competition for mixed teams of start-ups from NRW and Ghana have been announced. Click here for more information.
The cooperation was placed on an even sounder footing with the signing of a partnership agreement between Ghana and NRW in 2007. This brings together actors at national and sub-national level as well as companies, higher education institutions and civil society organisations.
Ghana and NRW are linked by a highly diverse partnership – featuring GIZ projects in the fields of climate change mitigation and resource conservation, the circular economy and renewable energy right through to support for start-up ecosystems and the export potential of Ghanaian companies.
The touring exhibition entitled ‘Aluminium, gold, e-waste – Nothing shines without a shadow’ explains the links between the behaviour of consumers in Germany and the consumption of resources in Ghana. The exhibition is available for loan.
