De Nederlandse veehouderij sector & internationale netwerken

K. Andeweg, F.R. Leenstra

Research output: Book/ReportReportProfessional


The Dutch government aims to link her support to international multi-stakeholder platforms, like the Global Agenda for Sustainable Livestock, to the needs of Dutch companies that are active in animal production in developing countries. This should contribute to the policy goals for realising food security and sustainable animal production systems worldwide. Interviews with tine Dutch companies and organisations indicate that the Dutch companies mainly see a position for the multi-stakeholder platforms in developing a regional or thematic dialogue on priorities and possible solutions. The aims of the different multi-stakeholder networks and other instruments that the government supports must be concrete and results should be evaluated on a regular basis. There are possibilities for networks operating on a global and on a regional level to strengthen each other.
