Map of management areas for Bonaire. .
This map was created on request of the Dutch ministry of Agriculture, Nature and Food quality (Dutch: Landbouw, Natuur en Voedselkwaliteit) to plan for activities on the basis of management areas, while recognizing the landscape diversity within these areas. To maintain the landscape diversity, it is elementary to differentiate management strategies during design and implemention. The management areas are therefor projected on top of the Bonaire landscape map (see details here) to emphasize the diversity within a management zone.
Delineation of management areas is a result from a co-production with representatives of the ministry, local experts and existing mapping material.
Existing map material:
- Zoning plan Bonaire (Dutch: Ruimtelijk Ontwikkelingsplan Bonaire)
- Rural development plan Bara di Karta (Dutch: plattelandontwikkelingsprogramma)
- Rural development plan Rincon (Dutch: plattelandontwikkelingsprogramma)
- Rural development plan Tras di Montana (Dutch: plattelandontwikkelingsprogramma)
- Historical toponyms
