Development cooperation is one of the main tasks of the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs. The Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs, through the directorate of Development Cooperation (DGIS), has adopted partnerships as an instrument to achieve poverty reduction and sustainable development in its cooperation strategy. DGIS seeks partnerships with the private sector to get additional results and generate additional funds for the Official Development Aid (ODA) to pursue the Millennium Development Goals.


DGIS is funding a number of significant initiatives linking poverty reduction and biodiversity conservation.
