The Sustainable and Inclusive Economic Development for Decent Employment in Nigeria- SEDIN, a programme of Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ), in Nigeria, works with the relevant government agencies, entrepreneurs and other stakeholders to address the fundamentals of the identified issues.

With major funding from the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ), its main objective is to strengthen the Nigerian business environment, to enable MSMEs increase competitiveness, revenue and create decent jobs. SEDIN has in the immediate past recorded measurable success in the areas of Local Economic Development, Policy Frameworks, Business Environment, Entrepreneurship Skills, and Financial Literacy among the target groups. This is majorly because we hinge the achievement of our objective on the implementation of our different interventions in collaboration with various partners at different levels.

We achieve this by advocating for an inclusive approach that guarantees everyone has equal access to the services we support. Our focus areas include environmental sustainability, gender equality, combating climate change, and ensuring access to sustainable infrastructure, all within specific clusters and hubs. SEDIN also works with stakeholders in the financial sector to engender financial literacy among MSMEs.
