Our missions

Expertise France is the French public international cooperation agency. It designs and implements projects which aim to contribute to the balanced development of partner countries, in line with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the 2030 Agenda and the priorities of France’s external action.

Taking action for development

The development policy has undergone profound changes in recent years. Significant strides have been achieved in the fight against poverty and in access to health and education. Inequalities do, however, remain and are exacerbated by climate change and the emergence of new conflicts.

Expertise France’s mission is to meet the demand of partner countries seeking to enhance the quality of their public policies in order to address the environmental, social, economic and security challenges they are facing.

The agency achieves this goal by implementing projects in the main areas of public action:

Democratic, economic and financial governance

Peace, stability and security

Climate, agriculture and sustainable development

Health and human development

Making expertise a component of solidarity and influence

Expertise France is under the supervision of both the Ministry for Europe and Foreign Affairs and Ministry of the Economy and Finance. The agency contributes to the development policy objectives of international solidarity and influence through its action in the field.

By making the transfer of know-how central to its action, Expertise France promotes working methods, legal and technical standards, but also a French and European vision of economic development and governance.
