GIZ

The Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH was formed on 1 January 2011. It brings together the long-standing expertise of the Deutscher Entwicklungsdienst (DED) gGmbH (German development service), the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Technische Zusammenarbeit (GTZ) GmbH (German technical cooperation) and Inwent – Capacity Building International, Germany.

Commissioned by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ), the land policy and land management project designs inputs and provides consultancy services for German and international cooperation efforts. Through close contacts with multilateral donors, such as the World Bank, the United Nations’ Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), the European Union and the African Union, German development cooperation decisively influences the structural parameters of land administration in international cooperation today, shaping its implementation in projects and programmes.

The writer – Carmina Flores-Obanil – describes that from 1982 to 1997 massive land conversions in the urban fringes of Bulacan and Cavite attribute to policies encouraging the expansion of industries in rural areas.
