ADEME and AFD renew their partnership

ADEME and The Agence Française de Développement (French Agency for Development, AFD) have renewed their partnership agreement for the coming five years. The new 2014-2019 agreement sets out the cooperation priorities in the areas of energy management, climate, waste management and the environment. Cooperation will be based on reducing vulnerabilities while also encouraging sustainable economic and social growth in emerging and developing countries, as well as in France’s overseas territories. Particular emphasis will be given to supporting the energy transition in the Mediterranean countries, sustainable urban development in Asia and Latin America, and access to energy in sub-Saharan Africa, by pooling our two organisations’ technical and financial expertise. The 21st Conference of the Parties on Climate Change (COP21), to be held in Paris in 2015, will also provide an opportunity to promote the best practices already being implemented to promote economic development, combat climate change and improve access to better living conditions for everyone. /
