The sustainable development mechanism is a useful dialogue tool for AFD’s financing appraisal process. The aim is to serve as a basis for questions and encourage consideration of each project’s impact on sustainable development at as early a stage as possible. In this way, it promotes dialogue with AFD’s partners on the anticipated effects of the projects with which they are involved. 

All projects financed by AFD are subject to a sustainable development analysis. Comprising six cross-cutting dimensions (biodiversity, climate, social ties, gender, governance and economy), the analysis covers all 17 of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
