In Germany there are 11 000 cities and municipalities who contribute to climate action in a creative way. But Hans-Joachim Fuchtel, Parliamentary State-Secretary to the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) believes that we should speed up action globally. We need to connect to our counterparts more quickly through partnerships and knowledge and innovation transfer.
Germany has 61 energy partnerships but can still do more. Germany plans to enter into 100 partnerships with Africa, a region that has huge renewable energy opportunities. Mobility and transport will also be a cornerstone of partnerships and collaboration in the future.
