The German development finance institution’s DEG, a member of KfW Bankengruppe, has been carrying out TA since 2005, using public as well as DEG’s own funds to enhance the developmental effects of DEG’s financing projects. The program addresses DEG’s clients exclusively.  In 2010, a total of 54 TA projects with a volume of EUR 3.8 million were realised. The character of the TA projects is very heterogeneous and ranges from risk management consultancy in the financial sector to various environmental and social measures and many different kinds of surveys and studies.  DEG’s technical assistance program follows a co-financing scheme, i.e. generally, DEG finances no more than 50% of the overall project cost, with the balance being covered by the client company. The maximum co-financed project value is EUR 193,000. The average co-financed amount per TA project in 2010 was EUR 70,000.
