German-Namibian development cooperation is a central component of the special relations between Namibia and Germany. Since Namibia's independence in 1990, Germany has supported the Namibian Government in its policy of national reconciliation and in dealing with the legacy of apartheid. The main goal of German-Namibian cooperation is to dismantle the social and economic disparities which resulted from Namibia's history.
Bilateral development cooperation is an integral part of the special relationship between Namibia and Germany: Since 1990, more than 800 million euros of public funds have been made available for this purpose. Namibia thus has the highest per capita input by the German government in Africa.
