Our strategic priorities

To finance operations that reconcile the protection of the global environment and economic growth in the countries where it operates, FFEM has historically focused its operations on the fields of climate, biodiversity, international waters, land degradation, chemical pollutants and the stratospheric ozone layer.

For 2019-2022, the FFEM is focusing its action on five priority themes that build on previous FFEM strategies, while at the same time identifying new potentials for innovation:

- Protection and enhancement of biodiversity
- Sustainable forests and agricultural lands
- Resilience of aquatic ecosystems
- Energy transition and resilient cities
- Product life cycle, pollution, and wastes

Furthermore, for any given theme, the FFEM gives careful consideration to innovation channels such as:

- Digital technologies
- Nature-based solutions
- Frugal innovation
- The “One Health” approach
