2010: New focus for development policy

German Development Minister Dirk Niebel, who participated in the climate summit in Copenhagen, called the results "disappointing". Now it was time to secure the progress that had been made, he said. The BMZ has already decided what it will do: support for partner countries will be increased – provided they themselves also work on limiting their greenhouse gas emissions and on pushing forward with efforts to adapt to climate change. During a meeting with World Bank Vice President Kathy Sierra, Niebel signed an agreement for Germany to contribute 50 million euros to the Bank’s Pilot Programme for Climate Resilience. At a meeting between Development Minister Niebel, Foreign Minister Guido Westerwelle and heads of state and government from eight Pacific Island States, Niebel announced that the regional programme "Managing the impact of climate change on land resources in the Pacific" would receive a further ten million euros.
