Our business is part of the German cooperative AGEG Consultants eG.
AGEG Consultants is an internationally recognised consulting company for development policy and international cooperation. We offer professional know-how and services for short- and long-term projects in diverse fields of activity in development aid. For over 20 years now, bilateral and multilateral organisations, NGOs, foundations, academic institutes and private clients have relied on AGEG's expertise. Our commitment to their goals has led to a trusted and successful cooperation throughout all phases of a project - from planning to implementation to evaluation. Established work relations exist with numerous clients, including among others GTZ (Gesellschaft für Technische Zusammenarbeit) and KfW Entwicklungsbank in Germany, as well as the European Commission and World Bank.
We have provided expert advice and assistance on a variety or projects, and enjoy working very closely with clients in order to give them advice that reflects an intimate knowledge of their aims, goals, and individual needs during a specific time frame. Our decades of experience allow us to offer you direction and advice that will assist you in reaching your targets efficiently and within budget.
Please get in touch if you think you would benefit from our consultancy services.
Our head office in Germany serves as the main point of contact for clients and partners. All projects in developing and transition countries around the globe are coordinated from our office in Kirchheim unter Teck. The project managers located here keep a constant eye on the objectives and progress of individual projects. They coordinate the activities of the specialists and ensure smooth communication among all parties involved. They work hand in hand with the heads of our eight departments who make decisions on technical matters and provide back-up support. Roughly 20 employees in the head office work together to ensure the on-site experts can fully concentrate on their work.
Over 150 experts are contracted by AGEG on a regular basis. Strongly tied to the company and its success, about 30 of them are shareholders in AGEG Consultants eG, a registered co-operative since 1989. Another 50 regularly work with us as associated specialists, and at least 80 experts are employed within long-term projects. In addition, we have access to over 4,000 professionals who have registered their qualifications with us. Together, they cover the broad range of skills required by our different areas of operation. Key criteria for cooperation are highest technical skills and proven cross-cultural competences/cultural sensitivity.

A world without poverty, environmental damage and violent conflicts - development policy and international cooperation aim to make this ideal reality.

The effectiveness of our actions on-site and the satisfaction of our clients and partners are AGEG's success criteria. We emphasize flexible, innovative, and anticipatory planning and implementation. At the same time, AGEG protects the interests of beneficiaries in the recipient countries. Respecting partners and target groups, advancing their personal responsibility, solidarity, and justice are inherent elements of our approach.
