A World Tour of Climate Solutions 2020 by the French Development Agency (AFD)
This second edition of the World Tour of Climate Solutions offers a cross-section of projects financed by the AFD Group. What is a climate project? How does it respond to a specific need in a particular region? What are its impacts both for the fight against climate change but also in the field and for the beneficiaries?
This brochure attempts to illustrate as best as possible, through projects carefully selected by the project teams and agencies of the AFD network, the multitude of sectors and geographical areas covered by its interventions. These projects all have co-benefits for the climate and positive impacts that contribute to mitigating climate change or better adapting to its effects.
At the end of the crucial year 2020, which will see the Joint Finance Summit held in Paris in November, it is important to remind people of the various financial tools available to achieve the climate objectives, as well as the contribution that public development banks can play as instruments to support States in raising their ambitions for 2050. The AFD is thus staying on track with its key objectives of protecting the planet, promoting sustainable development and reducing inequalities, and lets you discover 41 of its climate and biodiversity projects.
