Regional Initiative against the Illegal Exploitation of Natural Resources

GIZ

The Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH began its cooperation with the ICGLR in 2006.  Since 2012, GIZ has supported the ICGLR jointly with the German Federal Institute for Geosciences and Natural Resources (BGR) on behalf of the German Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ).  The program demonstrates Germany’s support for peace, good governance and sustainable development in Africa’s Great Lakes Region.

As ICGLR’s main partner, GIZ supports the ICGLR’s efforts to sever the link between the illegal exploitation of minerals and conflict financing. Through trainings, workshops, and long-term advisory services of GIZ experts, ICGLR is becoming a service provider for its Member States for the implementation of the Regional Initiative against the Illegal Exploitation of Natural Resources (RINR). Furthermore, GIZ supports the ICGLR in advocating for the RINR on the international agenda. This approach is completed by GIZ’s direct support to selected Member States. In the DRC and Rwanda for example, GIZ directly cooperates with the respective national institutions in implementing the RINR.
