K_NenR_141 Inventarisatie monitoringsindicatoren biodiversiteit Caribisch Nederland (BO-11-011.05-042)

Project: EZproject

Project Details


In recent years the MinEZ has invested in many studies in the Caribbean Netherlands to provide ecological baseline data. This has contributed to important advances in terms of biodiversity knowledge, policy and implementation (MinEZ 2014).
The Netherlands has reporting obligations, among others with respect to CITES, Ramsar, CMS, CBD, SPAW, IAC (Inter-American Convention for Protection and Conservation of Sea Turtles), IPPC (International Plant Protection Convention). To fulfil these requirements and be able to periodically evaluate overall biodiversity which includes hundreds of endangered and endemic species, and the management thereof, some form of monitoring is essential (MinEZ 2010).
Local policy on and management of nature and biodiversity partially overlaps with the same monitoring requirements, but might be in need of additional evaluation monitoring information.
Existing monitoring programmes on the islands cover only part of the obligations, while several existing protocols need to be reviewed. We propose to evaluate existing monitoring in view of (inter)national reporting obligations  and local needs and limitations.
