Federal Office of Civil Protection and Disaster Assistance

The Federal Office of Civil Protection and Disaster Assistance (BBK) is an executive agency of the Federal Ministry of the Interior, Building and Community and is responsible for matters related to civil protection and disaster assistance. The BBK takes into account all areas of civil disaster preparedness and integrates them into an effective mechanism in order to protect the population and its livelihood. BBK advises and supports other state-level and national authorities in their daily work. For example, it developed methods for risk analysis in civil protection, which can be applied for risk analyses on all administrative levels. Within the scope of its responsibilities in warning the population in case of hazards, BBK e.g. operates the warning app NINA that transmits hazard alerts to the public. The Academy for Crisis Management, Emergency Planning and Civil Protection as the central educational institution of the federal state regarding risk and crisis management, and regarding civil protection is organized by the BBK. Furthermore, the National Focal Point for the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction is based at the BBK.

Federal Office for Agriculture and Food

The Federal Office for Agriculture and Food (German: Bundesanstalt für Landwirtschaft und Ernährung (BLE) has a wide range of tasks in the fields of agriculture, food, rural areas, forestry, fisheries and consumer protection. As a modern service center, it supports its partners in the portfolio of the Federal Ministry of Food and Agriculture (BMEL), in the federal states and in industry. As a project management office within the BMEL, the BLE promotes and supervises numerous national and international projects along the entire agricultural value chain. At the international level, the BLE advises the BMEL on general issues of international cooperation and world nutrition and performs tasks in the field of EU research coordination.

As the market regulation body in the area of EU agricultural market and foreign trade regulations, it implements measures to stabilize agricultural markets, among other things.

At the federal level, the BLE also performs key food security and precautionary tasks outside times of crisis. These include regular recording of the supply situation, analysis and planning tasks, and organizational and technical management of national food stocks. In the event of a crisis, the BLE is given extended powers to secure the nationwide supply of food and feed.

Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit GmbH

The Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH is a German federal enterprise. It offers workable, sustainable and effective solutions in political, economic and social change processes to its customers. Most of the GIZ’s work is commissioned by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ). However, GIZ also operates on behalf of other German ministries and public and private bodies in Germany and abroad. On behalf of BMZ, GIZ has been active in implementing measures for disaster preparedness as well as post-disaster recovery (i.e. emergency aid and reconstruction measures aiming at preventing future disasters). Within the Global initiative on disaster risk management (GIDRM), GIZ worked to strengthen international networks comprising various actors to address specific challenges in disaster risk management in the key areas of strengthening civil protection and disaster risk management, the protection of critical infrastructures as well as the development, upgrade and expansion of early warning systems. Thereby, it aims to foster the implementation of the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction as well as regional action plans.

German Research Centre for Geosciences

The German Research Centre for Geosciences (GFZ) at Helmholtz Centre Potsdam is Germany’s national research center for the solid Earth Sciences. The GFZ develops a profound understanding of systems and processes of the solid Earth together with strategies and options for action to address global change and its regional impacts, to understand natural hazards and to minimize associated risks, as well as to assess the human impact on System Earth. The GFZ was in charge of the development of an Early Warning System for the Indian Ocean in the aftermath of the tsunami disaster in the Indian Ocean in late December 2004. The Tsunami Early Warning System was established in Indonesia and handed over to the country in 2011.
