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, our teams carry out more than 4,000 projects in France’s overseas departments and territories and another 115 countries.
French bilateral Aid, through the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the French Development Agency, is an historic partner of AU-IBAR. During the Rinderpest eradication era, French technical assistants have been seconded to the PARC and PACE projects. Between 1998 and 2002, the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs also funded RALEA (Regional Action for Livestock in East Africa), targeting mainly dairy and poultry sectors. Since 2006, French Aid, through the French Ministry of foreign affairs initially, and through the French Development Agency since 2009, is seconding a technical assistant to AU-IBAR, who provides strategic support to the institution.
