Dutch Development Results 2015: Food and nutrition security highlights

The Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs has released an online magazine which highlights results of their development agenda. It captures the contribution the Netherlands has made in 2015 to ban poverty and promote sustainable and inclusive growth around the world through the combined agenda for aid, trade and investment. In 2015, the Food and Nutrition Security program directly affected millions of undernourished people. A similar number was also reached indirectly. The Netherlands wishes to structurally support (cumulatively) 32 million people with their malnutrition between 2016 and 2030 and thereby contribute to Global Goal 2: end hunger and eradicate malnutrition. The main objectives of this development agenda were set out in the 2013 policy letter of Minister Ploumen titled, “A World to Gain: A New Agenda for Aid, Trade and Investment” which focused on: the eradication of extreme poverty (“getting to zero”) in a single generation; sustainable inclusive growth all over the world; and success for Dutch companies abroad. In implementing this agenda, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs has been operating in various roles: initiator, sponsor, funder, partner, broker and diplomat. Their aim has been to promote strategic dialogue and cooperation with companies, development organizations, the European Union, multilateral organizations, governments of low and middle income countries, civil society organizations, and knowledge institutions. The policy’s main focus has been connected to thematic areas where the Netherlands has a significant position to make a difference, including, amongst others, food and nutrition security.
