France’s development policy is defined and implemented in the framework of multi-party partnerships with all of the stakeholders concerned in France and in partner countries.

During the CICID meeting in 2018, the government committed to strengthening the role of local government bodies, non-governmental organizations, and all non-state actors in defining and implementing the development policy, particularly in the context of the work undertaken by the National Council for Development and International Solidarity (CNDSI), and also in other formal bilateral or sector-specific forums, such as the National Commission for Decentralized Cooperation (CNCD).
