The Netherlands

Core Country

Coordinating structure: There is no formal Cities Mission support structure in the Netherlands yet. However, the Ministry of Interior and Kingdom Relations (BZK), Regieorgaan SIA, and Platform31 want to work together to better support the seven Dutch mission cities in their transition towards climate neutrality in 2030. The role of the future national support structure will likely be to facilitate knowledge exchange and incorporate the identification and removal of barriers to the Climate City Contracts. The national Dutch partners in CapaCITIES will collaborate with various partners to set up the national platform.

National partner supporting the Cities Mission Cities Mission: Netherlands Enterprise Agency (RVO); TKI Urban Energy (special innovation program, part of Ministry of Economic Affairs and Climate); Municipality of Zwolle.
