About YEP

Young Expert Programmes's (YEP Programmes) mission is to create a young, renewed, inspiring international network and build expertise in the field of Water, Agrofood and renewable Energy through Dutch organisations, operating in developing countries and emerging markets. Together we contribute to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Netherlands Food Partnership is 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. The Young Expert Programmes (YEP) are established to ensure the continued availability of Young Experts and their expertise for the Dutch Water, Agrofood en renewable Energy sectors within International Development in the future. To achieve this, Dutch organisations (companies, knowledge institutions and NGOs) can submit a proposal for financial support for the deployment of a Young Expert.
