Join us on Tuesday, May 21, 2024, for an engaging network dialogue organized by NFP focused on the Dutch international agricultural policy.

NFP is organising a series of network dialogues on Dutch international agricultural policy. In this series, titled "Agricultural policy of a global champion", we explore opportunities to strengthen the Netherlands' role in global food security. Our goal is a transition of the agricultural- and food system that is not only good for the Netherlands, but also has a positive impact on food systems in low- and middle-income countries.

On Friday March 15, the Ministry of Agriculture, Nature and Food Quality (LNV) sent a new policy letter to the Dutch House of Representatives on 15 March (in Dutch). In this letter the Ministry sets out its commitment to fostering sustainable food systems on a global scale, focusing on three interrelated goals: 1) ensuring the long-term viability of agriculture, fisheries, and horticulture; 2) promoting global food security and addressing climate objectives; and 3) conserving and restoring biodiversity worldwide, with emphasis placed on knowledge and innovation, international corporate social responsibility (IMVO), and inclusive participation

You are invited to join us to share your ideas on the implementation of the policy. Your input is vital as we try to answer the question of "How can we strategically and practically shape the implementation of the policy to advance the sustainability of food systems in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs), leveraging inclusivity as key driver?” During the discussion we will explore how inclusivity can be put into practice across the three themes and explore challenges and opportunities for future implementation to strengthen the policy implementation with your expertise.

    During the Networking Dialogue, we discussed among others about the National Pathways to Sustainable Food Systems following the UN Food Systems Summit in 2021. In the session, it was mentioned that The Netherlands did not develop National Pathways for Food Systems Transformation. Can anybody tell me why this wasn't developed?
