We contribute to improving the institutional framework and the functioning of public systems of our partner countries. Our commitment towards solid public institutions aims, ultimately, favouring the delivery of public services for the benefit of citizens.

FIIAPP contributes to improving the life of citizens by promoting inclusive and sustainable development in line with the 2030 Agenda

For the period 2019-2020 we have committed to reinforcing, in particular, our capacities to advocate for ecological transition, gender equality and orderly and safe human mobility, three key dimensions to ensure a balance between economic growth, care for the environment and social welfare.

How we work?

  • Through peer learning, capacity building and the exchange of relevant knowledge, experiences and practices between Public Administrations.
  • Through innovative methodologies for the orientation of technical knowledge towards development results that meet the needs and demands of partner countries.

  • In our daily work we capture, process and disseminate strategic, methodological and procedural knowledge to learn as an organisation, improve our management capacity and be more efficient in assistance with public policies that benefit citizens.
  • We are a knowledge organisation because the raw material we work with is knowledge.
