The “Environmental Technologies Export Initiative” of the Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety, launched in 2016, disseminates and strengthens knowledge about and the application of environmental and climate protection technologies as well as innovative (green) infrastructure in countries in need of support. Within the framework of targeted, substantial projects, the necessary framework conditions for a sustainable application of environmental technologies are to be created.
