Publication – Mapping of French Stakeholders in Finance for Development

Finance for Tomorrow publishes today its “Mapping of French stakeholders in finance for development”. This work, from our “Finance for Development” Taskforce, aims to promote French expertise and enable synergies between projects financing players in order to accelerate the transition in emerging countries.

We also offer recommendations for eliminating friction that hamper participants in the ecosystem and increasing the Paris Financial Centre’s momentum in anticipation of COP 26! 

This mapping presents 40 key French players operating in this ecosystem and their positioning across the life cycle of sustainable infrastructure projects in developing countries. A range of criteria were used to select the entities mentioned in this document. Our list was compiled primarily on the basis of a questionnaire, combined with a series of interviews. F4T encourages any entity that may have been omitted to reach out in order to be mentioned in future editions.

The financing of infrastructure projects is a key asset of the Paris Financial Centre, which boasts a community of experts and active players in this field, with a long list of major infrastructure projects successfully completed abroad. However, French expertise on the specific segment of development finance is often misconstrued or even unknown, and thus represents a significant opportunity for growth and influence for the Paris Financial Centre.
