Institute for International Development Cooperation
The research commission of this institute, which was established in 1994 in the context of the academic programme of Friedensau Adventist University, is founded in the ethical and scientific responsibility to develop effective strategies and methods to improve the living conditions of underprivileged population segments in developing countries, to put them into practice and critically evaluate them. Research done by this institute is solely for scientific and charitable purposes. The primary goal is to develop the self-help capacity of aid recipients. Concrete research is done in interdisciplinary projects for holistic and sustainable development integrating health care, food production and processing, education and income-generating schemes. The institute cooperates with various partner organizations and institutes in developing countries. Mutual development projects can be realized in the framework of cooperation between partner organizations and the institute.
