A Planet for Life is published by the French Development Agency (AFD) and the Institute for Sustainable Development and International Relations (Iddri).


At the centre of the French system of public aid for developing countries and French overseas territories, AFD finances and assists development projects and programmes which support a more sustainable and shared economic growth, improve the living conditions of the poorest, contribute to protecting the planet and help to stabilise fragile countries or countries emerging from crisis. AFD also collaborates with French and international academic networks to feed discussion and forward planning on development.




Iddri is an independent institute for research on policies which functions as a multi-actor platform. Iddri identifies the conditions needed to implement sustainable development, and particularly for the protection and management of terrestrial ecosystems and the oceans, the creation of a new model of low-carbon, resilient prosperity, managing transition and the building of new alliances. Since its creation in 2001, Iddri has been recognized for its key interventions in the field of international cooperation and actions (countries, cities, companies) which keep each other informed.
