Stellenmarkt für Fachkräfte in der Entwicklungszusammenarbeit



Advisor (m/f/d) Project Strategy for "Promoting Sustainable Growth in the Textile and Garment Industry"


As a federal enterprise, GIZ supports the German Government in achieving its objectives in the field of international cooperation for sustainable development.


The Ethiopian government has adopted an Industrial Development Policy to transform the currently agricultural-led economy into an industry based one, aiming to lift the population out of poverty and becoming a middle-income country by 2025. The textile and garment industries are considered priority sectors on the path to industrialization. These sectors are, however, often characterized by precarious working conditions, low wages, non-compliance with human rights and social and ecological standards. The Federal Ministry of Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) and Department for International Development (DFID) funded project "Promoting Sustainable Growth in the Textile and Garment Industry in Ethiopia" aims at job effective growth and social and environmental sustainability of the textile and garment industry, by ensuring better working conditions for workers, better management in four industrial parks, increased sustainability on industrial parks and company level, improving institutional frameworks and improving capacities of local companies.
