The International Olympic Committee (IOC), the French Development Agency (AFD) and Paris 2024 are launching the “Sustained Insight and Impact” initiative as part of their joint commitment to expand the social legacy of the Paris 2024 Olympic Games.

Building on the success of the Paris 2024 Impact 2024 International programme, the IOC signed a partnership with AFD and Paris 2024 with the objective of expanding this legacy beyond the Olympic and Paralympic Games.

Through this partnership, the IOC will ensure continued funding for the most innovative and impactful projects currently supported by Paris 2024 and AFD in Africa. The IOC’s investment, over an 18-month period, aims to continue to build peaceful and inclusive societies through sport across the African continent, with a specific focus on supporting measures that will enhance the sustainability and scale of initiatives seeded through Impact 2024 International.

To support the delivery of this initiative, the IOC is working with Sport Impact, a pan African hub which connects civil society organisations with funding solutions and a community of experts in the area of sport for sustainable development.

The application and selection process will be open only to the laureates funded through the first three rounds of the Impact 2024 International programme.
