A commitment to Aid Effectiveness
France and South Africa are strongly committed to implementing the recommendations of the 2005 Paris Declaration and of the 2008 Accra Agenda for Action.
A South African strategy
French aid is focused on Government’s priorities and only operates in line with the bilateral Partnership Framework Document.
A results oriented approach
The “results oriented” evaluations carried out after all projects precisely assess the contribution of French assistance to South African development goals.
A predictable and contracyclical aid
The continued increase of French commitments to South Africa has allowed France to support its partners in difficult times, when its assistance was the most helpful.
A coordinated support
Alongside with a number of international donors, and particularly with the European family, France strives to reduce the costly fragmentation of aid and contributes to a clear division of labour.
