The German Development Service (DED) was the predecessor of today's development service of the GIZ. Founded in 1963 and based on the model of the US-American "Peace Corps", it can look back on a long history. As a state-run development service, GIZ continues the work carried out by the former DED over 48 years to help people to help themselves overcome poverty. DED's work put the spotlight on the local partner organisation. To this very day, development workers devise solutions together with local organisations, in response to specific needs in the partner country. In this context, they work primarily at municipal and regional level and are frequently embedded in local civil society structures. GIZ was formed in 2011.
