50% of grants and loans to foreign countries in 2016 have climate and development as co-benefits. With €24 billion committed since 2005, the AFD Group is one of the main international donors seeking to reconcile climate and development.
50% of the amounts AFD commits to foreign countries go to Africa, which is the priority target of French official development assistance.
50% of projects initiated in 2016 also further gender equality, which is a powerful factor of development and the fight against poverty.
50% of 2016 commitments were carried out as cofinancing with partners. Cofinancing makes it possible to multiply impacts and make more ambitious projects possible.
50% of our commitments in 2016 were devoted to "non-sovereign" activities. AFD provides financing not only for States, but more broadly for all the stakeholders of development: projects initiated by public and private enterprises, local communities, banks, investment funds and NGOs.
50% of commitments are made in countries belonging to the International Organisation of La Francophonie (OIF).
