Impact Coalitions

Netherlands Food Partnership identifies and supports Collective Impact Coalitions that have transformative plans which contribute to improved food security, healthy diets and sustainable agriculture.

Collective Impact Coalitions bring together government, business, civil society and research actors from different sectors. Jointly all stakeholders aim solving one or multiple problems that go beyond implementing a cross-sector or multi-stakeholder initiative.
