BO-projects

Since 2010 the Dutch Ministry of Economic Affairs has been supporting monitoring and research efforts under their “BO-projects” programme. These projects aim to gather information on topics which require policy decisions concerning nature conservation in the Caribbean Netherlands or to meet the requirements of reporting on international treaties and conventions. Most of these projects are carried out by Wageningen University. This overview provides information on all ‘BO-projects’ carried out in the Dutch Caribbean since 2010.
