BUILDING WITH OUR PARTNERS

At this time of the SDGs, solutions are being built jointly and disseminated crosswise around the world. Development requires collective and inclusive action at the right level. 

Consequently, half of our projects are cofinanced with partners: other development banks, but also territorial authorities, NGOs, foundations... Cofinancing leverages impacts, attracts other investors and brings about the most ambitious projects.

PROMOTING COALITIONS

It is all about building synergies between all stakeholders: States, local authorities, parliaments, civil society, the private sector, etc., and stimulating the exchange of experience and replication. The goals set out in SDG 17 are crosscutting (finance, technology, trade, capacities, structural issues) and concern all the other SDGs.

For example, with our strategic partner, Caisse des Dépôts (CDC), in 2015, we launched the International Development Finance Club (IDFC), a network of 23 national, regional and international development banks from 69 countries. AFD has held its Chair since October 2017. 

Through PROPARCO, its private sector financing arm, AFD has been supporting companies and financial institutions in developing and emerging countries for over 40 years – from SMEs to regional banking groups, and including microfinance institutions. It has 80 countries of operation and over 450 clients.

WORKING FOR A WORLD IN COMMON

AFD’s strategy is based on the premise of a structural principle: “We are all developing countries”. This principle underscores the fact that we all have something to learn from each other, in the spirit of SDG n° 17, and fully in line with the universal nature of the SDGs. In this spirit, AFD endeavors to raise the awareness of French citizens about the issues and benefits of the development policy.
