AFD Group’s priorities in South Asia over the coming years are part of the French strategy for the Indo-Pacific and res¬pond to the region’s climate-related, environmental and social challenges. They are aligned with the sectors in which French expertise is recognised and where French enter¬prises can contribute their know-how.
As AFD Group’s regional development platform, the South Asia Regional Office has been based in New Delhi since September 2019 with a geographical scope covering four AFD agencies (Islamabad, New Delhi, Dacca, Colombo) for five countries: India, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Pakistan, Afghanistan. Proparco and Expertise France, unlike AFD, can operate in Nepal, Bhutan and the Maldives.
AFD will thus specifically target the following priority lines of action:
- combat climate change by supporting low-carbon transitions
- promote the sustainable management of territories and preserve natural resources
- contribute to more inclusive economic growth.
