On 28 September 2015, Lilianne Ploumen, Dutch Minister for Foreign Trade and Development Cooperation, sent the policy letter ‘Inclusive development in the Dutch programmes for Foreign Trade and Development Cooperation’ (‘Inclusieve ontwikkeling in de Nederlandse programma’s voor Buitenlandse Handel en Ontwikkelingssamenwerking’) to Parliament.

In preparation of this letter, the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs launched an online consultation to assess the opportunities for promoting inclusiveness within its policy agenda for trade and international cooperation. This consultation was conducted by The Broker and INCLUDE in cooperation with the Ministry and the other Dutch Knowledge Platforms for Global Development. The consultation resulted in 106 contributions by experts from academia, international organizations, civil society, and the private sector.
