Stichting Nationale Parken (SNP)

In January 2017, SNP agreed that all National Parks within the Kingdom of the Netherlands will be eligible to participate in the new Stichting Nationale Parken initiative. For the first year, DCNA will participate as an “agenda member”, meaning that we will receive copies of all relevant documentation, notification of Board meetings with an invitation to attend and will be able to participate in any activities. This will give us the opportunity to contribute our ideas and requests and to contribute to discussions about what governance structure would best suit Dutch Caribbean National Parks as well as any costs, rights and responsibilities etc.

You can find copies of Board meeting and supporting documentation here.
