Netherlands Calls For Development Programming Sensitive To Both Conflict And Climate

The Hague

The Dutch government last week called for “more and better [development] programming that is both conflict- and climate-sensitive”. The Director General for International Cooperation at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Reina Buijs, said Friday that in conflict-affected and food-insecure rural regions, like the Horn of Africa, for example, the Netherlands was now supporting the resilience of food systems.
