At the request of the European Commission, Helena Imminga-Berends (and Jose de Bettencourt) preprared a study on the state of the environment in 25 European Overseas Countries and Territories (OCTs) and adviced on how to promote sustainable development.
Booklets, in French and English, summarise the results: Booklet OCTs in EN Booklet_OCTs in FR
The full reports can be downloaded from this European Union’s webpage.
This is the final report: Environmental profiles of the OCTs – Main report- English
The 5 regional reports contain all the individual country reports. For instance the Caribbean region report includes separate reports on the 6 OCTs related to the Kingdom of the Netherlands: the three countries Aruba, Curacao and Sint Maarten and the three ‘special municipalities’: Bonaire, Saba, Sint Eustatius.
In this project Helena Imminga- Berends of Regenboog Advies worked with Jose de Bettencourt in Portugal and Camille Vassart in Brussels.
The project is a follow-up to a previous study made by Helena and a British consultant in 2007. You can also download the ‘old’ reports from that page.
