The German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) supports the programme ‘SDG Partnerships’ using funds provided by the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ).

Funding is available for establishing partnerships between German higher education institutions and higher education institutions in developing and emerging countries (DEC). The programme focusses on planning, developing and realising higher education partnerships that give rise to a sustainable promotion of structures at partner institutions in teaching as well as research, and in the areas of higher education and research management.

The overall long-term program objectives are to contribute to sustainable development according to the 2030 Agenda, to the realization of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and to establishing high-performing internationally networked higher education institutions in the partner countries.
