Every five years a new nature policy plan is designed for the Caribbean Netherlands (Bonaire, St. Eustatius, Saba). To evaluate and help adapt this policy every five years periodic reporting on the "status of nature" is essential. In addition, periodic reporting in light of the SPAW protocol of the Cartagena Convention and the CBD Convention also require such assessments. To address these three reporting obligations efficiently, suitable indicators of ecological status of nature are needed as are reference values (RVs) and adequate approaches towards analysis and reporting format.
The main goal of this assignment is do deliver the first assessment of the status of nature for the Caribbean Netherlands based on currently available baseline studies and current monitoring programs. This work will also inform and advise on the need to adapt or expand current monitoring activities.
