VAG is part of a strategic alliance with the German Association for International Cooperation (GIZ). The aim of the alliance is to prepare a practical guide on the use of pressure management systems in the field of water loss reduction. The GIZ functions as the executive organ of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ). The project is sponsored by the German Federal Minister for Economic Cooperation and Development.
