The effects of climate disturbances are putting people and ecosystems in peril, especially in the developing countries most vulnerable to climate change. To limit the increase in global temperature by the end of the century, we need to both accelerate the transition to low-carbon societies and strengthen their resilience to the impacts of climate change.
Since the adoption of the Paris Agreement and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), it has become clear that climate change and development are two challenges that must be associated.
As a development finance institution, AFD supports the emergence of more sustainable development models. Its climate actions mirror he objectives of the Paris Agreement: they seek to limit greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, enable people and ecosystems to adapt to the effects of climate disturbances, and align its financial flows with long-term low-carbon and resilient development.
