Workshops & Trainings

DCNA works as a regional body to build capacity for nature conservation on the six Dutch Caribbean islands. This is accomplished through regional projects, staff exchanges, trainings and workshops.

The emphasis is on providing hands-on support and assistance for everything from governance to practical conservation management within the region.

A unique aspect of the regional conservation network is its ability to address institutional capacity building, which is achieved through trainings, workshops peer-to-peer exchanges, technical resources sharing and multi-island projects.

The facilitation of multi-island conservation projects aims to address gaps and needs at a regional level and allows a higher standard of professional nature management within the Dutch Caribbean.
