In a debate in Dutch Parliament in October 2014, Minister Lilianne Ploumen for Foreign Trade and Development Cooperation committed to send a letter to Parliament in Spring 2015 on the inclusiveness of Dutch projects and programmes. The letter will address inter alia ‘’the problem that the most marginalised and disadvantaged groups are not reached sufficiently”. The letter will set out how inclusiveness is embedded  in Dutch programmes and identify ways to strengthen efforts within the framework of current policy for trade and international cooperation.

In preparing this letter, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of The Netherlands launches a consultation, organised by The Broker, in cooperation with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the five Knowledge Platforms for Global Development . This consultation will be launched online on the website of the INCLUDE Knowledge Platform in the first week of March and will run for one month.
