This paper deals with three interrelated subjects of importance to present-day geography of development in the Netherlands: environment, an interdisciplinary research and policy relevance. The first section reviews briefly the recent trend towards environmental issues which increasingly calls for an interdisciplinary research. Experiences with interdisciplinary research in Dutch geography of development are therefore examined in the second section. Finally, the third section discusses how the policy relevance of these studies and of Dutch geography of development at large could be increased.
