Experts for municipal partnerships worldwide

The project „Fachkräfte für kommunale Partnerschaften weltweit” (FKPW), Experts for municipal partnerships worldwide, is a joint project of the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH and the Servicestelle Kommunen in der Einen Welt (SKEW) of Engagement Global.

FKPW supports municipalities in Germany and in the Global South in boosting their partnerships. The project assigns experts internationally and locally and thus, makes a contribution towards improving the ability of municipalities to deliver services and demonstrate good local governance, making the cooperation structures of partner municipalities more viable and expanding the commitment of civil society.

In a team with Carsten Zehner and Lukas Born, Bürogemeinschaft Gauly & Volgmann supports GIZ on the following topics:

  • Conducting survey missions in selected countries
  • Methodical and strategic support to ensure the quality of the project
  • Knowledge management and documentation of the learned experience
