German municipalities are involved in various areas of sustainable development. For instance, they champion fair trade and fair procurement or maintain partnerships with municipalities in the Global South. Following the adoption of the 2030 Agenda, municipalities in Germany and elsewhere are increasingly perceived as important development policy actors. Since 2013, the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) has been funding municipal development policy through a separate budget item. The Service Agency Communities in One World (SKEW), which was established in 2001 and is now part of Engagement Global gGmbH, is responsible for implementing this funding. In Germany, more and more municipalities are now receiving support for their development-related activities. To what extent do SKEW’s offers meet the needs of German municipalities? To what extent are the goals of municipal development policy achieved within Germany and how much of this can be attributed to the SKEW? What are the potentials and risks of SKEW’s offers with regard to development policy impact? This evaluation aims to provide systematic answers to these and other questions, focusing on the period from 2013 to 2020.
