Since 2017, all the beneficiary countries of official development assistance (as defined by the OECD DAC) in which AFD is authorized to operate are eligible for FEXTE, whatever the level of their per-capita gross national income.
The technical cooperation program must meet three criteria:
- Comply with AFD’s geographical and sectoral missions and priorities;
- Develop existing French expertise or experience;
- Contribute to French influence, in economic, public-policy and/or ecological diplomacy terms.
