1 GERMAN COOPERATION: Towards Sustainable Cities Cooperación Alemana: Desarrollar Ciudades Sostenibles German Events and Contributions at the World Urban Forum April 2014, Medellín, Colombia

2 Welcome Cities are the dynamic centers of our time, places where the opportunities and challenges of global sustainable development all come together. At the same time, it is becoming more and more difficult to make cities a good environment to live in. Therefore, the central concern of German development policy in the field of urban development is to mobilize all actors and to set in motion processes, which will lead to the sustainable and inclusive development of cities and urban areas. The German Pavilion represents a broad range of participants including representatives of ministries, cities, municipal associations and international cooperation organizations working towards sustainable cities. We welcome you to the German Pavilion and invite you to share your thoughts and project ideas to contribute to the discussion on sustainable cities of tomorrow.

23 Participants 23 BMZ The Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) is responsible for formulating the principles and strategies of German development policy. These then form the basis of the cooperation projects and programmes developed together with our partner countries and with international organisations. Sustainable urban development is recognised as a key element in achieving international climate and development goals (e.g. MDGs) and therefore constitutes a significant field of German development policy. BMUB The Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Buildings and Nuclear Safety is focusing on a sustainable use of resources and an environmentally as well as climate friendly deployment of our country and on international level. This applies to the conservation of flora and fauna, the promotion of resource efficiency as well as an active role of Germany in avoiding climate change and environmental damage. Further responsibilities are the security of nuclear facilities and related issues. Since 2013 the Ministry is also in charge for the building sector and urban development in Germany. BMBF The Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) promotes education and research to contribute to securing our country s prosperity. Research creates previously unknown opportunities in all domains of life, and it keeps our products and services innovative and competitive. International exchange in education and science is also one of our responsibilities.

24 24 PT-DLR, Project Management Agency The PT-DLR, Project Management Agency (part of the German Aerospace Center) is a research funding organisation supporting the Federal Ministry of Education and Reserach (BMBF) along with other Federal Ministries, in the implementation of programme-related project funding. Bearing in mind the necessity and the importance of research and development for the science and business location Germany, the PT-DLR is committed to the interests of the community. It carries out the specifications of its principals competently and swiftly, thus supporting the acquisition and utilisation of scientific knowledge and technological progress. GIZ As a federal enterprise, the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH supports the German Government in achieving its objectives in the field of international cooperation for sustainable development. GIZ offers workable, sustainable and effective solutions in political, economic and social change processes. GIZ operates throughout Germany and in more than 130 countries worldwide. KfW KfW is one of the world s leading and most experienced promotional banks.

25 25 Deutscher Städtetag The German Association of Cities is the voice of Germany s cities. It is also the national association of all the country s autonomous and most of its affiliated cities and towns. A community of solidarity, it acts as the cities advocate for the idea of local selfgovernment in dealings with the Federal Government, federal states (Bundesländer), the European Union, and governmental and non-governmental organisations. The work and services of the German Association of Cities are primarily geared to the needs and interests of the direct member cities and their citizens. Engagement Global ggmbh ENGAGEMENT GLOBAL is the contact point in Germany for development policy activities. Since January we have been bringing initiatives and programmes active in development policy work and dedicated to fair global cooperation together under one roof. ENGAGEMENT GLOBAL is commissioned by the German Federal Government and funded by the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development.

26 26 City of Bonn Bonn is Germany s United Nations City with 18 UN organisations working towards a sustainable development worldwide, surrounded by a dense cluster featuring science, economy, media and 150 NGOs. Bonn has long qualified as leading platform for the debate on sustainability and place to learn about solutions for a better future. City of Hagen The city of Hagen lies in the heart of North Rhine-Westphalia. Its Environmental Protection, Youth and Social Affairs administration division is engaged in international projects in the field of climate change mitigation and energy saving at the European level but also cultivates partnerships in sustainable development with other countries. City of Leipzig Leipzig, 1989 the city of the peaceful revolution, has a population of making it the largest city in East Germany second only to Berlin. Leipzig has a long and tradition as city of books, education and literature. The hometown of Johann Sebastian Bach has also an international reputation as a city of music and is home to the famous Gewandhausorchestra. Following unification in 1990 Leipzig went through a period of radical transition. Losing the majority of its jobs, population declined radically in a city whose valuable architectural heritage was in urgent need for renovation. Leipzig at that time was at the brink of losing its historical identity. Today it can look back to a successful transformation: Quality of life improved e.g. via city wide urban regeneration processes and since 2001 the population is growing again, actually at the biggest rate in Germany.
