4th Salon des solidarités - Parc des Expositions at La Porte de Versailles (June 1, 2012)
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs plays an active role in the Salon des solidarités. The initial phase brings together, every two years, international solidarity actors and the general public interested in the challenges of development assistance and emergency humanitarian relief.
The Quai d’Orsay supports the international commitment of French international solidarity NGOs and their initiatives. To that end, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs is mobilizing €45 million for development projects implemented by AFD and €8.5 million per year for emergency humanitarian action.
This process is aimed at strengthening cooperation between the French NGOs and civil society in the South and taking action more closely geared to the needs of the vulnerable populations.
