Building Change

Since 2014, FMS has been working with Partos and Word & Deed together to put policy coherence for development firmly on the map in the Netherlands. Together, we advocate for fair Dutch policies that do not have a negative impact on developing countries. Sustainable development "at home and abroad", economically, socially and ecologically. We seek a fair and ambitious implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals (the SDGs), led by a positive, encouraging government.


To achieve this, cooperation with many parties, such as companies and financial institutions, is essential. We want to bring all these parties together on three key themes: climate, finance and international trade. Because this is where breakthroughs are needed to achieve sustainable development. Our goal? Jointly making a strong noise towards The Hague, in order to realise these breakthroughs.Want to know more about our work within Building Change? Visit the website!
