Since 2012, AFD has been operating in three priority sectors: energy, water and sanitation and transport.
Fostering energy independence and access
Upgrading essential water and sanitation services
Accelerating economic development through better and safer roads
Present in the country since 2012, AFD has been working with the Zambian government to improve road infrastructure, expand access to electricity and water, and support the transition toward a sustainable energy future.
Between 2012 and 2017, AFD’s portfolio was mostly focused on sovereign lending, but the organization is now diversifying its lending options to include non-sovereign loans and credit guarantee schemes to both private and public sectors.
AFD's Zambia office is directly attached to the Southern Africa regional office in Johannesburg.
