The Netherlands’ food and nutrition security policy contributes to the objectives of SDG 2: eliminating malnutrition, doubling the productivity and income of small-scale farmers (both women and men) and making food production systems more sustainable. Via the Facility for Sustainable Entrepreneurship and Food Security (FDOV) and SDG Partnership facility (SDGP) the Netherlands Enterprise Agency supports partnerships between government, businesses, NGOs and/or knowledge centres to contribute to these objectives.
These partnerships focus on inclusive value chain development, centered around one or more viable business cases for private sector actors. At the same time these partnerships aim to improve the productivity or quality of a certain (export) crops, improve income of smallholder farmers and/or increase the local quality, availability and affordability of certain food crops.
These projects offer opportunities to also contribute to nutrition outcomes if certain aspects in the project design, implementation and evaluation are considered.
During a webinar and workshops we will elaborate how this can be done and which methods, tools and guidance documents are available to project owners. We have summarised these tools here.
