Piet Kleffmann, Head of TruBudget Task Force at KfW Development Bank
I have been active in Development Cooperation throughout my whole career with a strong focus on Africa. Before joining KfW in 1998 I worked as Technical Advisor for Agriculture in Chad, Cameroon and Burkina Faso. At KfW Development Bank I was first in charge of programs in Maghreb region and later coordinating partnerships with other german development institutions. After heading the KfW Office in Kenya for 5 years I took over the Division Governance and Natural Resources in Southern Africa.
In my work I always try to find innovative ways of project funding in order to strengthen partner systems and to improve donor harmonisation according to the requirements of the Paris Declaration. Against this Background I developed 2017 together with KfW's Digital Office a blockchain-based platform called TruBudget to ensure a transparent use of public funds.
