Yvelines Coopération internationale et développement (YCID) is a network formed in 2015 upon the initiative of the Yvelines Department. It has nearly 400 members in 2022 (associations, local authorities, public establishments and businesses), including a large number of structures from the African diasporas in Yvelines. It is open to all Yvelines stakeholders involved in international cooperation, whether it be development aid or economic cooperation:  

  • Support for entrepreneurship via the "YADEC" honorary loan fund;
  • Assistance for the recruitment of trainees thanks to the 2EA grant;
  • Individualised support for the implementation of projects.

 YCID has privileged relations with institutional stakeholders in Senegal, including the DER/FJ, ADEPME and FONGIP. YCID maintains very close links with the diasporas of Yvelines, particularly African ones. A majority of our members are structures made up of diaspora members who remain very active both in the network life and as project leaders. The YADEC honorary loan fund is open to all Yvelines residents.


YCID is not a sectoral organization. The YADEC Fund does not target a particular sector but remains attentive to the impact of the project on the inclusive and sustainable development of the African continent (local value creation, job creation, social and environmental impact, etc.).
