Fondation Ensemble is a private, state-approved Foundation, set up in 2004 by Gérard Brémond and his wife, Jacqueline Délia Brémond. It aims to bring concrete and sustainable improvements to the target communities’ living conditions (social and economic impacts) while protecting and/or rehabilitating the environment (environmental impacts). Since it was set up in 2004, the Foundation has funded over 200 projects throughout the world.

They focus on: (1) sustainable agriculture: i.e. development of good farming practices, capacity building for representative bodies or scaling up through a serious implication of local and/or national authorities, and support and advocacy actions to promote policies favorable to the replication of these sustainable approaches; (2) sustainable fishing: i.e. 1. selective fishing, combating illegal fishing and management of related conflicts, setting up protected areas (delineation of fishing areas, regulations on net size, minimum fish size requirements, use of non-polluting fishing vessels, etc.) and involving local communities in the management of such protected areas; (3) biodiversity conservation: i.e. protection and rehabilitation of particular ecosystems on the grounds of their rich biodiversity or other environmental or human significance, protection of animal and plant species, including combating poaching and trafficking or greenhouse gas mitigation and/or adaptation to climate change; and (4) sustainable technologies: i.e. access to renewable energy, reduction in consumption of non-renewable or expensive fuels, use of agricultural, animal or human waste for energy production.
