Team Programmes & Projects

The Programmes & Projects team is responsible for the strategy, design, and implementation of all the NIMD programmes in the countries. Since local ownership is an important guiding principle within NIMD, the programmes are designed and implemented together with local partners in the countries. The team in The Hague makes sure that policy priorities are incorporated in the programmes and focuses on the overall coordination. Together with the partners, they also do in-country and, where relevant, regional fundraising.

In addition to country programmes, the team is also responsible for the acquisition and management of short-term projects. This team is managed by Karijn de Jong.

Team Knowledge & Strategic Relations

The Knowledge & Strategic Relations team is responsible for knowledge development, external positioning, and organization-wide fundraising. Being practitioners, it is important to be able to apply our approach in different political contexts and to continuously learn and increase the impact of our work. The Knowledge & Strategic Relations team supports this by expanding the NIMD knowledge base, developing tools, piloting innovative political party assistance approaches, and communicating this to NIMD's stakeholders. This team is managed by Wouter Dol.
