Tropische natuur in Nederland

In oktober 2010 kregen Sint Eustatius, Bonaire en Saba de status van bijzondere Nederlandse gemeente. Dit houdt in dat Nederland de medeverantwoordelijkheid moet nemen voor de bescherming van een aantal unieke tropische natuurgebieden. Zo ook op Statia, zoals Sint Eustatius in de volksmond wordt genoemd.

NetBiome meeting, Reunion

Overseas Countries, Territories and Regions (OCT/Ors) of Europe working together for sustainable management and research of biodiversity

In June, 2015, the NetBiome partnership of Dutch, French, Portuguese, and Spanish OCT/Ors met in Reunion to discuss progress and next steps for the partnership. The main topics were the outcome of a series of stakeholder consultations addressing four common high priority challenges for biodiversity management, and how to consolidate that into a policy brief. Also discussed was the status of an online “Biodiversity Toolbox”, being compiled from the information collected by the partnership, and how to continue the partnership when the current EU funding ends in 2016.
