AFD uses grants to finance actions in the social sector (health, education), rural and urban development initiatives, and infrastructure projects.

This tool may be in several forms:

  1.  Grants to NGOs
  2. Debt Reduction-Development Contract (C2D)
  3. Delegation of funds from other donors 

 

Priority countries

AFD allocates grants to a limited number of countries: poor countries considered as priorities. 

AFD complies with the decision of the Interministerial Committee for International Cooperation and Development (CICID) meeting of July 2013 to earmark a minimum of two-thirds of grants for priority poor countries.

List of priority poor countries:

  • Benin
  • Burkina Faso
  • Burundi
  • Central African Republic
  • Chad
  • Comoros
  • Democratic Republic of Congo
  • Djibouti
  • Ghana
  • Guinea
  • Haiti
  • Madagascar
  • Mali
  • Mauritania
  • Niger
  • Senegal
  • Togo

Projects financed via grants are appraised with the same rigor as those financed with loans. They have the same quality standards and effectiveness requirements (impact measurement).
