The knowledge platforms were set up in 2011 on the initiative of former state secretary for foreign affairs Ben Knapen. The aim of the platforms is to deepen knowledge relating to development and to make the conduct of research more strategic and less fragmented. Research and the exchange of knowledge through the platforms support policy implementation and help make Dutch developments efforts more effective. They also aim to promote self-sufficiency and development in developing countries.
