A laboratory for innovations and pilot actions
FFEM places innovation at the center of its action.
It promotes innovative actions which test new methods or techniques that provide a response to global environment problems.
Its objective is to test solutions and learn lessons in order to subsequently facilitate their dissemination and deployment in other geographical areas or/and on a larger scale, by other donors or commercial banks from the North or at local level.
Since its creation in 1994, FFEM has allowed over 300 projects reconciling environmental protection and economic growth to come into being and serve as models for the implementation of environmental projects and policies on a larger scale. It is a laboratory for innovations that facilitates the links between research and development.
