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.

Saline Water and Food Systems

The Netherlands has a solid and promising position in the field of salinity, with a focus on saline agriculture, growing of salt-tolerant crops, linkages with irrigation and drainage. The Netherlands is internationally also known for its integral and systems approach in tackling the mitigating and adaptation of salinity issues. The general picture is that better coordination and cooperation between Dutch organisations is needed to keep and strengthen that international position. More importantly, it will further strengthen the Netherlands contribution to tackling salinisation and thus contributing to SDG2 – Zero Hunger. For this reason, the Ministry of Agriculture, Nature and Food Quality invited Netherlands Food Partnership (NFP) and Netherlands Water Partnership (NWP) to explore the development of a new partnership or platform on ‘Saline Water & Food Systems’ (SW&FS).


SeedNL enables powerful collaboration between relevant Dutch organisations and international partners to achieve urgent changes that contribute to SDG2 by 2030. SeedNL aims to strengthen the seed sector in developing countries, provide appropriate access to quality seeds for all farmers and increase productivity and farmer income.

Youth and Sustainable Agriculture

To effectively realise a transition towards sustainable food systems with solid opportunities for Youth, there is a need for connections with the right actors, for the development of viable business models and increased attention for youth in research, policy and educational curricula. To realise this, Youth should be in the center of the discussion and action.
