New approaches

The Aid and Trade policy of the Netherlands Embassy has been building on a strong and longstanding track record in the agriculture and water sectors. The policy aims at a more intensive trade relationship and entices Dutch companies to invest in Kenya.

At the same time, global challenges related to climate change brings more extreme weather patterns with prolonged droughts and excessive flooding, also in Kenya. This calls for new approaches in water resources management for agricultural, domestic, institutional and industrial use. In this context, the Netherlands supports Dutch companies and joint ventures that provide innovative solutions to mitigate and adapt to the effects of climate change.
