The State of Brandenburg has already adopted "Development Policy Guidelines" in 2012. In the "Internationalisation Strategy" adopted in 2014, the state government has formulated its objectives for more intensive international cooperation in three fields of action:

  • Concentrating the state's external contacts,
  • Strengthening Brandenburg's ability to act in international working contexts,
  • Making Brandenburg more attractive internationally.

In this context, cooperation with countries outside the European Union has also developed in the environmental and agricultural sectors.

In recent years, the cooperative relations of the Ministry of Agriculture, Environment and Climate Protection (MLUK) have concentrated on priority regions. Concrete projects are being implemented together with other actors.

Since 2015, for example, a partnership has existed between the Banhine National Park (Gaza Province) and the Lower Oder Valley National Park (Brandenburg State). This cooperation focuses on exchange in the field of biodiversity conservation.

Further cooperation has been agreed in 2017 by the State Agency for the Environment and the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environmental Protection of the Republic of the Union of Myanmar. The subject of this agreement is the cooperation between the UNESCO biosphere reserves Spreewald, Flusslandschaft Elbe and Schorfheide-Chorin (Brandenburg) and the UNESCO biosphere reserve Lake Indawgyi (Myanmar).

There are also contacts with the Russian Federation, in particular with Kaliningrad and the Moscow region, which are to be intensified under the leadership of the State Chancellery and the Ministry of Justice and for Europe and Consumer Protection (MdJEV) of Brandenburg, also in the field of agricultural economics on a project-related basis.

Protected areas along the Elbe river in the Czech Republic and Germany signed a memorandum to establish the cross-border network "ELBE Parks" in 2020. Czech and German protected areas want to cooperate more closely and exchange information in this network. In particular, topics such as the ecological importance of river ecosystems, wetlands, and river landscapes as well as the conservation of biological and geological diversity along the Elbe river are to be the focus of cross-border cooperation. The biosphere reserve Flusslandschaft (river landscape) Elbe-Brandenburg is active in the network on behalf of the State of Brandenburg.
