AFD has a dual mandate to finance sustainable development and produce knowledge. The second aspect of this mandate aims to enhance strategies and provide concrete responses to the challenges of poverty and sustainable development. This means learning from experience, anticipating future challenges, proposing innovative solutions, and promoting exchanges between actors and geographies. This mandate enables AFD to contribute to international debates and further France‘s influence. This knowledge production is systematically conducted in partnership with the academic world, to which AFD brings its specific knowledge of concrete development issues as well as privileged access to the fields involved. This paper presents the stakes and orientations for AFD in terms of knowledge production for the next five years (2014 - 2018).
