Our activity sectors

Our core activities: engineering and implementing projects for technical cooperation.

In order to contribute to the capacity building of partner countries, the agency designs, develops and implements, in close collaboration with these countries, projects and programmes for development cooperation.

Expertise France operates at every level of the project cycle: identification and definition of needs, definition of methodology, identification and mobilization of experts and partners, implementation as well as monitoring and evaluation of the project.

The agency implements cooperation projects either directly or via experts, consultancies or NGOs.

The agency also develops integrated offers, gathering various skills so as to meet, by mutual agreement, the needs of a partner country. This activity mobilizes public expertise as well as private know-how.

As regards public finance, in Egypt as well as Guinea, our new projects contribute to mobilizing tax revenue, to promoting transparency in public management and to the budget and accounting reforms of partner countries.

The agency also supports the establishment of a framework conducive to economic development (statistics, regulations, digital economy and support to SMEs).

Since May 2015, we have been contributing to Myanmar’s regional and global trade integration with the “Support to Trade Development” project.

Expertise France supports emerging sustainable development strategies in Africa and in the Mediterranean region. In 2015, the agency helped 26 African countries and Small Island Developing States to draft their Intended Nationally Determined Contributions for addressing climate change at the COP21, by presenting objectives to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and strategies to meet climate change.

Expertise France meets issues related to industrial pollution and local development, as with the European project for reinforcing environmental governance in the Gulf of Gabes in Tunisia.

As regards the sustainability of cities, our initiatives in the Mediterranean region and in Asia meet the growing need of cities and local authorities for structuring issues relating to governance, urban growth, mobility, climate and energy.

Expertise France is highly involved in the reinforcement of health systems and in the fight against pandemic diseases (5% Initiative and OPP-ERA/Unitaid Project). In 2015, the agency took action against the Ebola epidemic with four projects, including the PREPARE project in Guinea.

Our action is extending to new fields: maternal and child health, transplants, taking care of addictions…

Expertise France is also conducting projects to prevent chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear (CBRN) risks, to monitor the export of dual use goods and to build the capacity of civil protection services.
