7250. Toward an Assessment Framework for Policy Coherence of Dutch Support to Oil and Gas Development in Developing Countries

The Inclusive Green Growth department (IGG) of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs has asked the NCEA to propose a framework that helps the minister of foreign trade and development cooperation (Dutch acronym: BHOS, for Buitenlandse Handel en Ontwikkelingssamenwerking), supported by IGG, to assess the policy coherence of support to the exploration and development of fossil fuel production in low and medium income countries, predominantly in Africa. The minister was in particular interested in coherence of her support with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) agenda and the Paris agreement on climate change.
