More about YEP

The mission of the Young Expert Programmes (YEP) is to create a global network of inspired young professionals, to develop expertise within the field of water, agrofood and renewable energy. The Young Experts work for Dutch organisations operating in low to middle income countries and emerging markets, whilst contributing towards the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Netherlands Food Partnership is a partner in YEP Agrofood, one of the three Public Private Partnerships of YEP involving the Ministry of Foreign Affairs departments – the Inclusive Green Growth Department and Personnel and Organisation Department. YEP Programmes are established to ensure the continued availability of Young Experts and their expertise for the Dutch water, agrofood and renewable energy sectors to support future international development. To achieve this, Dutch organisations (companies, knowledge institutions and NGOs) can submit a proposal for financial support for the employment of a Young Expert via the YEP Programme Bureau.
