Who we are

The Sustainability Advice programme is facilitated by the NCEA and pays specific attention to the integration of the main themes of Dutch development cooperation policy.

This programme is the successor of the Dutch Sustainability Unit (2012-2016). It has the same target audience and objectives – to support DGIS and embassies with mainstreaming sustainability in (the development of) their strategies and activities – but with a stronger focus on strategic advice.

The coordination of the Sustainability Advice programme is carried out by a core team comprised of staff-members of the NCEA. However, all NCEA staff members can be called upon for their expertise and input.
