Investing for decent work
Promoting social and inclusive business
Supporting the private sector
While employment is the primary source of income for individuals and families, people in developing countries are massively confronted with unemployment, underemployment, precarious employment and poor working conditions.
By supporting economic activity and transitions, all AFD interventions, whatever the sector, can have an impact on jobs. In particular, AFD:
- supports policies to access employment and improve the quality of jobs to promote decent work
- promotes Social and Inclusive Business, by supporting all the economic stakeholders at the various stages of development
- facilitates job creation through its sectoral financing (agriculture, energy, etc.), and, in particular, through its support for the private sector and financial systems.
