The SDG Partnership facility (SDGP) helps to achieve the following sustainable development goals in developing countries:
- SDG 2: ending hunger
- SDG 8: decent jobs and economic growth
- SDG 17: partnerships for the goals.
To reach these goals, we must work together. That is why SDGP works with public-private partnerships (PPPs) between government, businesses, NGOs and/or knowledge centres.
Public-private partnerships focus on improving water security, food security and private sector development in developing countries. We challenge businesses and social organisations to find innovative solutions together.
For example, yours could be a project that leads to a higher agricultural yield in developing countries using less raw materials, land, water and fertiliser. Another example is a project that contributes to local job opportunities and better working conditions, focusing on the position of women and young adults.
Every year, the organisation that leads the project must report the progress to the Netherlands Enterprise Agency. We reimburse the subsidy contribution in predetermined instalments. Initially, all payments are advance payments. Read more about reporting on the Project Management page.
Are you an SDGP or FDOV project partner? Do you want to share knowledge and work together with other partnerships?
If so, please join our online community, where partnerships and advisors meet each other. It is the place to be for sharing knowledge, experience and results: Partners in Sustainable Development community.
We offer the Impact Accelerator (IA) to new and current PPPs. With this activity programme, we facilitate knowledge exchange and the creation of new networks. Together with embassies, we plan training courses, networking meetings and webinars. Do you want to increase the impact of your SDGP network? Then, contact our advisors.

PPPLab was a four-year action research and joint learning & support initiative. It was active between 2014 and 2018. It aimed to share the relevance, effectiveness and quality of Dutch supported public-private partnerships (PPPs). PPPLab's mission was to gather and share knowledge and lessons from and on PPPs. This knowledge and lessons are valuable for improving implementation and policy. PPPLab's initiative focused on partnerships in the first rounds of the:
- Sustainable Water Fund (FDW), and
- Facility for Sustainable Entrepreneurship and Food Security (FDOV).
In our documents and publications library, you can find all PPPLab documents.
