BORDA is currently facilitating BNS (Basic Needs Services) development projects in South and Southeast Asia as well as in southern Africa. Within the framework of BMZ projects (German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development) BORDA supports a partner network, the BNS Network. Partner organisations funded by the BMZ via BORDA are contracted by government agencies, city councils, private-sector entities and international cooperative development organisations.

Worldwide there are currently more than 20 project cooperation offices belonging to partner organisations, which are accountable for the planning and implementation of socialstructure development projects. BORDA project offices are responsible for the regional coordination of development projects supported by the BMZ as well as public relations and quality control. In addition to this, they broaden project appeal through project-related collaborations with local administration, trade associations and NGOs, as well as German and international development aid organisations.
