In 2018, when AFD Group adopted its 4th Strategic Plan (2018-2022), it committed to support six major “transitions”: social, energy, digital, political, economic and territorial and ecological. A process of strategic reflection has sought to identify priority issues and find the best ways to accelerate these transitions.
The territorial and ecological transition involves changing the development trajectories of countries by taking into account the specific characteristics of each territory. The objective is to ensure that no one is left behind and that the ecological footprint of these trajectories is sustainable.
At the crossroads of all the other transitions supported by the Group, this transition focuses on the sectors of water and sanitation, urban development, transport, rural development and the conservation of biodiversity and natural resources. These sectors mobilize between €4 billion and €5 billion of AFD financing every year.
AFD Group has today launched a consultation to allow all its stakeholders to comment and provide input for this new strategy.
Themes for reflection include:
• How to give a greater sense of community life?
• How to enhance the attractiveness of territories?
• What solutions for more resilience?
Whether you are in Paris, Jakarta, Dakar or Mexico City, whether you work in the public or private sector, whether you represent a civil society organization or are a member of the general public, and whatever your knowledge and expertise on these issues, we would welcome your input. It really matters to us.
The consultation is open until 28 August 2020.
Access the consultation and tell us what you think!
