Scientists maintain that ecosystems and natural resources are the foundations on which the future of all societies will be built. It is therefore crucial to preserve their integrity, diversity and capacity to provide essential services to people and territories. This is also the focus of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, yet current development models are still struggling to achieve it.
AFD as a Group - including Proparco and Expertise France - is actively involved in taking on this challenge. It is committed to promoting the financial and technical support that ensures a gradual and fair transition towards a pro-nature economy. An economy that protects ecosystems and ensures sustainable management of resources by public and private stakeholders in all sectors that benefit human development and inclusive social cohesion, especially for the most vulnerable.
