Peace and Justice
In January 2016, AFD integrated governance into its field of competence and now assists its partners in their political and citizen-based transition. Sustainable development cannot be achieved without peace, stability and the deployment of transparent and effective institutions all over the world. Our areas of action: public finance management, economic governance, State reforms, the rule of law, justice, migrations and the fight against human trafficking.
