With 'BMZ 2030', the BMZ has drawn up a reform strategy for bilateral German development cooperation. This is designed to help manage interventions and funds even more strategically, effectively and efficiently, thus supporting implementation of the 2030 Agenda. Bilateral official development cooperation will play a particular role here, as the BMZ's direct official cooperation is implemented through the four implementing organisations GIZ, KfW, PTB and BGR. A procedural reform of bilateral development cooperation is thus a key prerequisite for achieving the reform goals. The modules of the implementing organisations are usually bundled and implemented in development cooperation programmes. These programmes are therefore a key strategic instrument for the BMZ in bilateral development cooperation.
