About SNV

SNV is an international not-for-profit development organisation. We believe that no-one should have to live in poverty and that all people should have the opportunity to pursue their own sustainable development.

Starting out in the Netherlands nearly 50 years ago, we now work in 39 countries in AfricaAsia, and Latin America.

Our global team of advisors use their specialist expertise in Agriculture, Renewable Energy and Water, Sanitation & Hygiene to contribute to solving some of the leading problems facing the world today.


Panama has a well-developed service sector, which includes the Panama Canal, banking, and an extensive free trade zone.  Despite this strong economic activity, not all segments of the population have benefitted, and more than 25% of Panamanians still live in poverty.

Given this context, SNV seeks to advance more equitable and inclusive economic and social development. SNV has coordinated with the Netherlands Embassy located in Panama, particularly related to private sector engagement. These initiatives include the following:

  • Coordination of a Roundtable on Corporate Social Responsibility with private companies
  • Private Sector Mapping of firms interested in connecting to majority markets
  • Explorations with Panamanian firms interested in promoting Inclusive Businesses
