AFD – Agence Française de Développement
The Agence Française de Développement (AFD) Group funds, supports and accelerates the transition to a fairer and more sustainable world. Focusing on climate, biodiversity, peace, education, urban development, health and governance, the AFD teams carry out more than 4,000 projects in France’s overseas departments and territories and another 115 countries. In this way, AFD contributes to the commitment of France and French people to support the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
Development banks, local authorities, NGOs, foundation and civil society organizations.
Building a fairer and more sustainable world – a world in common that leaves no one behind – implies six major transitions, both here and over there, in the social, energy, territorial, digital, civic and economic spheres. And achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) depends on succeeding in these transitions.
Moreover, in line with United Nations Sustainable Development Goal 2, AFD Group is working to strengthen autonomy, sustainability and resilience in agricultural value chains. AFD has adopted an integrated strategy that combines several objectives: preservation of natural resources and biodiversity, the economic development of agriculture, and territorial development in rural areas.
Finally, AFD is paying special attention to gender inequalities, which are very pronounced in rural areas and in the agricultural sector and, as such, constitute a key development focus.
In the coffee sector, ADF supports Kenyan small coffee farmers.
