The Africa Strategy of the Netherlands 2023-2032

The first Dutch continent-wide strategy on Africa comprises an integrated vision of political and economic cooperation with the continent of Africa. As stated in the coalition agreement, the government wishes to encourage economic development founded on equality, reduce poverty, improve respect for human rights and limit irregular migration. The fundamental shifts in global geopolitical relations mean that more cooperation with Africa is not only necessary but urgent. A strategy is required that sets out clearly how the Netherlands intends to collaborate successfully with its African partners, now and in the future, in fostering a stable, peaceful and secure neighbouring continent.
