IES Chairman Serves as Roving Reporter
6 October 2004
On 5 and 6 October 2004, IES chairman Wouter Veening participated as "roving reporter on conflict" in the meeting of environmental experts of the Dutch embassies with the Directorate Environment and Water of the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
He was asked to raise the subject of environment and conflict at the various sessions and to report on the discussions relating to (potential) activities of the Embassies in this field, since there is a window within the Dutch development cooperation budget for this issue.
