Brazil and Germany together face global challenges such as preserving biodiversity and combating climate change. In Brazil, the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) operates mainly in two thematic areas: protection and sustainable use of tropical forests, as well as renewable energy and energy efficiency.
The forms of cooperation are already profoundly impacted by digitization, an axis that GIZ has placed at the center of its corporate strategy. Data-based processes multiply in the company and different projects can serve as a point of contact with the international community that produces free knowledge, enabling a desired exchange in favor of sustainable development.
