At the heart of the African continent, Central Africa is a diverse area that is loosely and unevenly integrated regionally and marked by contradictory dynamics and tensions which can weaken cohesion, whereas several countries in the region face common challenges.
Established in Douala, the Regional Office of Central Africa covers Cameroon, Gabon, the Republic of Congo, the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), the Central African Republic (CAR), Equatorial Guinea and Sao Tome and Principe. The mission of the regional office is to implement the strategy of the Group in Central Africa with teams from AFD, Proparco, the subsidiary dedicated to the private sector, and Expertise France for technical cooperation
Three main themes will guide AFD Group strategy in Central Africa to support the sub-region in “Overcoming its vulnerabilities for sustainable, green and united development”:
- support political and civic transitions and the fight against vulnerabilities
- promote human capital and economic diversification
- protect natural capital and strengthen resilient and shared territorial dynamics.
