Since 2015, the United Nations 2030 Agenda has explicitly recognized the contribution of sport to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG), and yet international cooperation actions incorporating sports remain rare. AFD encourages and supports the emergence of Sport & Development initiatives within the projects it funds. It promotes access to sport for all, in particular young people, women and girls, and contributes to enhancing education and gender equality.
This position embodies the French Government’s determination to meet the expectations of young people, the driving force of change, and to act in an innovative manner.
