About the Spatial Development Programme Caribbean Netherlands

The Spatial Development Programme Caribbean Netherlands (ROP CN) is a programme that describes the policy objectives that have consequences for spatial planning on the islands of Caribbean Netherlands. The programme thus creates important frameworks for the spatial development plans on the islands. The programme focuses on various spatial policy issues, such as population growth, sufficient housing, climate change, and the preservation of cultural and natural values. The ROP CN provides an overview of government policy and proposes measures to achieve sustainable spatial development. It promotes structured consultation between the public entities and the Central Government and contributes to an integrated policy structure on the islands.
