As a specific mechanism for financing and supporting innovation-focused projects, the FISONG (Facilité d'innovation sectorielle pour les organisations non gouvernementales, or Sectoral Innovation Facility for Non- Governmental Organizations) is a tool that AFD (Agence Française de Développement, or French Development Agency) has had at its disposal since 2008. A laboratory for testing new ways of doing things, the FISONG focuses on support-ing new innovative technical processes and new organizational structures (partnerships, organizations, etc.). Projects are supported via a learning-based approach, with significant follow-up/evaluation/experience capitalization activities for implemented projects, and there is an expectation that any actions supported will have a multiplier effect.
