countries (e.g. YDF or Nelson Mandela Foundation).
2. Regional programmes based in South Africa
 Germany and South Africa jointly build-up regional networks (AFUR, CABRI,
3. Cooperation among emerging countries
 Demand-driven and topic-specific cooperation with GIZ-programmes in other
emerging countries (e.g. SA-India: rural development, Indo-German Tool Room; SAChina: technology cooperation / wind energy).
 Various former Inwent programmes (as e.g. Managing Global Governance, Climate
Leadership Porgramme, Dialogue Forum Emerging Countries, etc.)

Lessons Learnt (1)
 Because of the (at least) tripartite nature increased project
management efforts required
 Conflicts between New Donor and Recipient (partly
reservations against SA as regional power)
 Understanding of South African counterparts of the new mode
of delivery (SA as donor and not recipient any more)
Seite 6
Lessons Learnt (2)
a) for the third country
 The third country benefits from the expertise of an experience donor and
an emerging country that has successfully undergone similar changes
 Increase of grant funds for the third country
b) for South Africa
 Supporting SA to become a responsible regional power in practical
learning-by-doing situations
 Dedicated support to the establishment of own institutional capacities for
development cooperation
 Increase in reputation and positive outreach into the region
Seite 7
Lessons Learnt (3)
d) for the German development cooperation / GIZ
 New mode of delivery as an innovative and adequate instrument of
cooperation with emerging countries (increase in ownership and partner
 Increase the positive outreach of South Africa on the continent (SA as the
engine of Africa’s development)
 Empower South Africa as a New Donor, thereby supplementing
contributions of traditional donors.
c) for the project management in general
 “Cultural proximity” of the new donor as a chance, but at the same time
challenge for adequate project management
 Increase in efficiency through the utilization of GIZ structures and expertise
in third countries
