French Official Development Assistance (ODA)
France’s development policy is part of a renewed framework which combines the fight against poverty and the three aspects of sustainable development: economic, social and environmental. This definition was subject to extensive discussions with all French development actors. It helps to further France’s cultural, diplomatic and economic influence and places special emphasis on the Francophonie.
French cooperation policy aims to address four mutually-supportive issues, whose controlled development is important both to France and its partners:
puceoupas Promoting peace, stability, human rights and gender equality
puceoupas Equity, social justice and human development
puceoupas Sustainable, job-rich economic development
puceoupas Protecting the environment and global public goods
