Dutch development results in perspective 2019

About Holland



In May of 2020 the Ministry of Foreign Affairs published an overview of the results achieved by the Netherlands in the field of development cooperation in 2019.

The report describes per theme and per country the results achieved by the Netherlands and its partners between October 2018 and October 2019. The results thus have not been affected by the current Covid-19 crisis. The consequences of this crisis will put their mark on the results in the years to come.


The combination of social development and economic growth is at the core of the Netherlands’ development policy. Within this policy, the focus is on themes in which the Netherlands is strong and can make a difference.

Countries and regions

The Netherlands has a special development relationship with 19 partner countries. In addition, specific regional programmes have been established for the Great Lakes region.
