Flow Awarded Contract To Assist GIZ In Its Communication Work

As a public-benefit federal enterprise, the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit GmbH (GIZ) supports the German Government, in particular the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ), and many public and private sector clients in achieving their objectives in international cooperation in around 120 countries. Flow Communications has been awarded a three-year contract via a public tender process to assist GIZ in its communication work across the African continent.

Over the next three years Flow Communications and its Francophone partner, Dakar-based communications agency, Africaine de Conseils et de Communication (ACC), will be working with GIZ in Africa to develop strategy, implement communications activities, deliver capacity development training, and monitor and evaluate communications.

Since 2004, GIZ has been a reliable and trusted partner of the African Union (AU) to enhance inclusive growth and sustainable development on the African continent in line with the AU’s Agenda 2063: The Africa We Want. GIZ African Union cooperates with the AU Commission, as well as the AU’s specialised institutions and agencies, such as the Development Agency AUDA-NEPAD, at continental, regional and national level in more than 35 member states. Key areas of engagement include Peacebuilding and Conflict Prevention, Governance and Migration, Sustainable Economic Growth and Employment, and Health and Social Development.

‘While Flow has worked fairly extensively with GIZ in the past on various projects and initiatives, this is the first time we have embarked on regular retainer work of this scale and magnitude across the entire African continent,’ said Tiffany Turkington-Palmer, managing director of Flow Communications. ‘Our team is super-excited and ready to embark on this journey along with our partner agency, ACC. We could not ask for a better way to start 2024, with such a wealth of fascinating, value-driven work.’

‘We are very happy to support GIZ in its communication in partnership with Flow. We will bring our expertise to French-speaking markets in particular,’ said Fabrice Marrel, associate director of ACC.
