Shaping international cooperation together with partners
Good cooperation in international projects is always about give and take. The Oeko-Institut has been working with partners and networks in Africa, Asia and Latin America for many years. However, this type of project involves much more than conventional forms of consultancy and science. In most cases, the Institute works closely with local partners who operate on a scientific and value-oriented basis, much like the Oeko-Institut itself, and have established good local networks. Problems and potential solutions are jointly analysed and discussed before being taken forward by stakeholders in the countries concerned.
How do international projects work? Which mutual interests are involved, and how has the nature of this cooperation changed over the years? In the new episode of the Oeko-Institut’s “Wenden bitte!!” podcast, Senior Researcher Andreas Manhart provides some answers.
