Research accompanying projects
Partner countries, as well as development policymakers and institutions benefit from knowledge about interdependencies relevant to development so that they can efficiently tackle development policy challenges like poverty reduction, climate change, and the securing of peace. KfW Development Bank encourages scientists to be involved in the projects it finances in developing countries to improve understanding of interdependencies and solutions. Some research is also co-financed by our own projects. The prerequisite are generally several years of lead time for planning and approval from the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) and the partners to make project funding available for accompanying research.
