The KVP programme is a proven tool used by German development cooperation to foster partnerships with German chambers of skilled crafts, business associations and employer organisations. Its objective: sustainable economic development.Created by Germany's Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ), it leverages German business-sector know-how and expertise for the benefit of development cooperation.Since 1992, German Sparkassenstiftung for International Cooperation has rolled out projects in more than 90 developing countries and emerging economies thanks to the support of over 100 institutions that make up the Sparkassen-Finanzgruppe (Savings Banks Finance Group). During this period, more than 2,000 Sparkassen employees have provided valuable assistance as consultants.
KVP's key strength lies in the transfer and alignment of approaches that have proved their worth in practice in Germany. Projects that promote partnerships with German business for key development purposes are not bound by any bilateral agreements that may exist. German Sparkassenstiftung not only spearheads specialist steering on BMZ's behalf but also oversees quality assurance.
