Dutch foreign ministry and CSOs discuss strategic partnerships on development framework
Around 150 civil society partners and staff from the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Trade and Development Cooperation came together for the third 'Linking and Learning' event, which takes place within the Dutch development framework of 'Dialogue and Dissent'. This framework provides funding to 25 strategic partnerships among Dutch and local NGOs, with a primary focus on advocacy. The event aimed at discussing and reflecting on the strengths and weaknesses of the current framework. Outcomes will feed into the next policy framework that is currently being prepared in the Ministry.
