This global project of the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit GmbH (GIZ) supports the "Export Initiative Environmental Protection" on behalf of the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Nuclear Safety and Consumer Protection (BMUV) in its efforts to introduce and apply innovative, integrated environmental and climate change mitigation technologies. With this GreenTechKnowledgeHub, we provide an inspiring global space for practitioners, policy makers, entrepreneurs, environmentalists and interested people to exchange experiences, good practices, learnings, and innovative approaches. We bring together the experience and knowledge of our global partners to build Communities of Practice for the deployment of sustainable infrastructure and technologies for greener economies and better lives. Let's create exchange networks!
