DVP Food security and agriculture (participant: South Africa)

This DVP focused on sustainable, efficient and innovative Dutch solutions in the field of food security and logistics.

During the ten-day visit, the participants were given a general introduction to the Netherlands, attended presentations on Dutch policy at the Ministry of Economic Affairs, took part in roundtable discussions on financing sustainable sector initiatives and in workshops on vertical urban farming, and visited the Port of Rotterdam, Wageningen University and Research Centre and FrieslandCampina. As usual, the plenary programme was followed by two days of individual meetings, which was valued by all participants.
