It also explains the importance of the water sector for development cooperation. The sector Strategy serves as the basis and provides a set of criteria for sector dialogue with partners and other donors, for the BMZ's priority area strategy papers, for the planning and implementation of German development projects, and as a benchmark for the assesssment of European and multilateral development cooperation in the water sector. The Sector Strategy provides guidance for non-governmental organisations on approaches and developments in German development cooperation and offers interested third parties information about the German government's support policy for cooperation with developing countries in the water sector.
