Dairy position paper width 1200

How it started

NEADAP partners are inspired by the position paper "Dairy for nutrition, employment and sustainability" (Andeweg and many others, 2020) which presents an action agenda for Dutch dairy development support in African and Asian countries. The contributors to this paper represent all facets of the Dutch Diamond, working in the private sector, knowledge institutions, civil society organisations and government. The paper is based on their extensive knowledge of and experience. The action agenda presented in this paper aims to contribute to three objectives:
  • Affordable, safe and nutritious diets

  • Gainful employment and improved livelihoods

  • A sustained agro-ecological base
