ACTED (French: Agence d'Aide à la Coopération Technique Et au Développement), formerly 'Agency for Technical Cooperation and Development', is a French humaniarian NGO set up in 1993. It is a non-governmental, non-political and non-profit organization committed to supporting vulnerable populations across the world. ACTED’s teams take action in 35 countries, responding to emergency situations, supporting rehabilitation projects and accompanying the dynamics of development. ACTED develops more than 450 projects a year towards 8 million people, with a €160 million budget. The organization employs more than 400 international staff and over 4300 national staff. It is the second largest French NGO. The headquarters are based in Paris, France.

Approach and commitment

ACTED teams are devoted to supporting vulnerable communities throughout the world and accompanying them in building a better future by providing a response adapted to specific needs. By ensuring the link between Emergency, Rehabilitation and Development, ACTED’s teams guarantee that interventions made in a situation of crisis are useful and sustainable, because only long term support – by remaining in the area post emergency and involving communities – can end the poverty cycle and accompany populations on the road to development.

ACTED’s teams on the field are implementing more than 450 projects in those fields: responding to emergencies and building disaster resilience, food security, health promotion, education and training, promoting inclusive and sustainable growth, economic development, microfinance, institutional support and regional dialogue, cultural promotion.

With its experience working closely with vulnerable communities at the heart of situations that they live in throughout the world, ACTED contributes to reaching the Sustainable development goals (SDGs) and is engaged in the definition of the sustainable development goals, advocating for an integrated approach, co-construction and global partnership.

In association with several French, European and International partners, ACTED is committed to promoting and developing innovative approaches and initiatives, humanitarian principles, new forms of solidarity and convergences between private and public actors and NGOs from the North and the South covering themes such as aid efficiency and transparency, evaluation, information and coordination of humanitarian emergencies, promotion of local governance and civil society strengthening, sustainable access to income and microfinance, prevention and reduction of catastrophes, the link between development aid, sustainable development and social business, food security, etc.
