Policy Advising

The right to formulate policies lies in each country's autonomy and is exercised by the constitutional bodies of the respective countries. The role of international cooperation in policy advising is thus reduced to facilitating social negotiation processes and developing the capacity to form and implement policy. Projects of international cooperation have an important task in the implementation of international agreements and conventions. These include, for example, the Endangered Species Act, the Climate Agreement, REDD+ and the Convention for the Protection of the Rights of Indigenous Peoples. In these processes, there are many occasions and opportunities for policy advising including:

  • Advising on the consideration of climate change in the respective sector policies of a country
  • Support in the concretization of national policies and their incorporation in plans consistent at national and sub-national levels
  • Establishment, support and monitoring of governance mechanisms
  • Support to political bodies in decision-making


We support cooperation system actors, whose goal is the protection and sustainable use of natural resources, who are involved in the establishment of governance mechanisms. We also advise governments and economic institutions in the formulation of green growth strategies. Furthermore, we support state organisations, e.g., agriculture and environmental ministries, in policy formulation and implementation. At a local level, we support sub-national authorities in land-use planning and in the formulation and implementation of development plans in close cooperation with the private sector.
