Protecting Global Public Goods includes the fight against climate change and pandemics; the preservation of biodiversity; the promotion of social and environmental responsibility; as well as aid to countries weakened by strife, war and natural disasters. The AFD Group has contributed to development in the occupied Palestinian territories since November 1998. The AFD's activities aim to meet two major challenges: strengthening major institutions to contribute to the emergence of a viable Palestinian and establishing the conditions for sustainable development to encourage social cohesion and peace.
