The sector programme embraces two fields of activity. In the first field, it is working to achieve improved national and international positioning of German development cooperation in the field of sustainable textile supply chains, by delivering direct advice and support to the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ).
The second field of activity involves providing support for the work of the Partnership for Sustainable Textiles, through the Partnership Secretariat. It is responsible for putting in place the conditions needed to ensure good cooperation among the different groups of actors, thus forging ahead with the realisation of the Partnership’s ambitious goals.
The sector programme’s initiatives can achieve direct impacts for end consumers and in producer countries within the global textile and clothing industry. There are no regional restrictions.
