The Netherlands launched their first NAP in 2007, and revised their NAP in 2011 for the period 2012-2015. The development of the Netherlands' revised NAP is not specified, although the Ministry of Foreign Affairs provides an institutional umbrella for the NAP.
The Netherlands launched a third National Action Plan in 2016 for the period 2016-2019. The third NAP was developed as a cooperation between government and over 50 Dutch civil society organisations and knowledge institutions with the goal to: ‘help break down harmful gender norms, enhance protection, and give men and women equal leverage in conflict prevention, resolution, peacebuilding, relief and recovery’.
The Netherlands does not have a recent history of conflict, but they play an important role in international peacekeeping and humanitarian efforts. As such, there is an international focus to the Dutch NAP.
From a recent academic analysis on the second Dutch NAP of 2011: It is the only NAP that includes a detailed table of financial and human resource commitment from involved parties. Perhaps related to this is that it is also the only NAP to have been co-signed by civil society organizations. The NAP is very casual, including text boxes referencing specific stories or titling sections as “Let’s Keep Going! Dutch National Action Plan for 1325 (2012-2015)”. The NAP also includes a lessons learned section explaining how it improved upon the first Dutch NAP. It references that the original NAP consisted of too many goals and activities - 19 goals and 72 activities - and thus the 2012 NAP has fewer goals and activities.
