Created in 1951 NEDECO is an independent non-profit foundation that promotes Dutch consultancy know-how and skills in the area of land & water, transport, infra-structures and environment. In close co-operation with the Dutch government NEDECO initiates pre-competitive strategies for projects and technical assistance in sustainable development and infrastructure projects in countries around the world.
The NEDECO network consists of some 9 independent leading Dutch consultancy organisations and technology institutes working internationally in the fields of land & water, transport, environment and infrastructure. The firms cover a much wider field of expertise, but the network limits itself to these sectors where specifically Dutch experience and publicly and privately developed know-how meet. With a total of more than 20.000 staff members in a world wide network of projects and offices NEDECO can form a wide variety of consortia, each one tailored to a particular client’s need. The NEDECO secretariat co-ordinates the network activities.
