Significant details

The NCEA's Dutch Sustainability Unit (DSU) received a request from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA) of the Netherlands to provide support in the assessment of the need to adapt MFA's policy on food security and its centrally managed portfolio of food and nutrition security (FNS) programmes to the consequences of climate change. The DSU was specifically requested to address the following question: "Is our policy and our centrally managed programme portfolio on food security and food production such that they anticipate in the right way on the consequences of climate change  and the role the Netherlands (including the BV Netherlands) can play as big player in the field of food production? In other words: Is the portfolio focussing on the right continents, regions, countries, target groups, food chains and production systems, and does it follow the right approach/strategy?"
