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.
