In the Netherlands, SDG activities are coordinated by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and are bundled on the SDG Gateway. This is part of a growing societal movement of companies, NGOs, knowledge institutes, philanthropy, municipalities and governments committed to contributing to the SDGs, individually or jointly, by signing the SDG Charter.
‘Building Change: Global Goals at Home and Abroad’ is a project of Partos, Foundation Max van der Stoel and Woord en Daad. Their aim is to create strong coalitions in key areas, like financing for sustainable development, trade, climate and energy, to work towards the realisation of the SDGs. There is a strong focus on business and public private partnership in the Netherlands.
There is no national SDG coalition of NGOs in the Netherlands and CSOs are invited to participate on an ad-hoc basis. WECF Netherlands hopes to be able to help to facilitate such a coalition the coming years. Existing partnerships of different stakeholders are portrayed on the SDG Charter and SDG Gateway website.
