Timeline Guide

How to use this timeline

Welcome to the NICC Timeline Guide
The NICC timelines are developed to share insight on Dutch international cooperation and development. The timelines have been structured according to different themes (water, gender, education, agriculture, climate) and different countries.

This timeline shows the Netherlands' gender, security and peace policies and practices in the South, and any international discussions that influence the policies and practices in chronological order.

On the NICC website you can find an overview of the different timelines NICC has developed. The website also offers a video gallery where you can find various interviews with experts from the field of international cooperation and a search engine for the NICC collection.

Although we already gathered a lot of information, our timelines are never completely finished. If you have input for one of our timelines, feel free to contact us! You can do so by sending an email to info@stichtingnicc.nl
