The European Fund for Sustainable Development (EFSD)
As part of its framework of the External Investment Plan, the European Commission established the European Fund for Sustainable Development (EFSD) to support investments in Africa and other countries in its Neighborhood. The overall aim of the EFSD is to contribute to the goals of the United Nations 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, particularly to eradicating poverty, and to the various commitments under the European Neighborhood Policy.
The EFSD supports sustainable and innovative investment, going beyond classical development assistance, helping to maximize financial additionality, deliver innovative products, and catalyze private-sector investment.
