The European Fund for sustainable development and the EFSD guarantee

In 2017 the European Parliament and the Council of the European Union have established the European Fund for Sustainable Development (EFSD), the EFSD Guarantee and the EFSD Guarantee Fund: measures supporting businesses, bodies and organisations with the goal (i) to enable investors and private businesses to more contribute to the sustainable development of partner countries and (ii) to involve the private sector in the sustainable development activities of EU partner countries.

More details on these measures and options available for who intends to benefit from such guarantee are set out here, in our Africa team update.
