2015 was a red letter year for the sustainable development agenda. The Addis Ababa Conference on Financing for Development, the UN General Assembly on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the COP21 conference established guidelines for a new, universal approach to tackling the interrelated, interlocking issues of economic development, social inclusion and preservation of our planet. Those many goals cannot be reached unless all the stakeholders – from companies and financial institutions to central governments, from civil society to local authorities – pitch in to help. Their involvement and contribution will be essential to tackling the underlying challenges and fostering the emergence of pioneering approaches to creating responsible, sustainable models of development. Just such a commitment to alliance and partnership guides the work of the AFD Group, above all at Proparco, whose role is to ensure a continuum between public-sector Policy and private-sector investment strategies in ways that maximize developmental impact.
