AFD representative Elodie Vitalis emphasizes the significance of her role in aiding island nations to address climate change and preserve biodiversity.

“The mission entrusted to me is not only a professional challenge but also, and more importantly, a tremendous opportunity to a clause close to my heart, support the transition of island countries to meet the challenges of climate change and the protection of biodiversity.”

She adds that AFD will strive to support projects that promote adaptation to climate change, energy transition, marine and terrestrial ecosystems conservation, and sustainable and inclusive finance.
