About NFP

Netherlands Food Partnership enables powerful collaboration between relevant Dutch organisations and international partners to achieve urgent changes that contribute to sustainable food systems and nutrition security and reach SDG2 by 2030. We connect for bigger impact.

Accelerating transformative coalitions

We support coalitions of relevant Dutch and international actors that have transformative plans which contribute to improved food security, healthy diets and promote sustainable agriculture. We facilitate relevant support such as: need assessments, design of theories of change, access to local networks, the development and implementation of strategies and action plans.

We create experimental space to prototype new approaches and solutions. We link research institutes with practitioners to reach synergy and to scale transformative approaches. Coalitions are supported to establish ‘proof of concept’ of innovative ideas and to bring innovations to the market.

Connecting knowledge & expertise

We collect, connect and combine knowledge of all involved stakeholders and coalitions. We run landscape analyses to identify existing knowhow, knowledge gaps, similar initiatives and potential partners. Provide information and market scans for potential sources of financing.

We share inspiration, experience and SDG2 related solutions. We organise reflection events to learn from each other about what works and what does not. We promote solutions, including coalition highlights, in international forums and during the annual Dutch SDG2 event World Food Day.

At the heart of Netherlands Food Partnership is an agile core group of coalition builders and knowledge brokers, extended with a flexible pool of experts in Europe, Africa, The Mid East, South East Asia and Latin America. And we have funds to engage experts and seed capital to finance specific activities that enables a coalition to initiate and to accelerate. In 2021-2022 we aim to contribute to at least ten new, exciting value propositions for sustainable food systems.

Netherlands Food Partnership is a foundation, endorsed and funded by the Netherlands government and accountable to a board and supervisory council.
