Opportunities and challenges for environmental statistics in Aruba

In the following we describe a framework for nature and environmental statistics to acknowledge its place within the CBS in Aruba and to acquire the benefit of cooperation with other environmentally-oriented institutions in Aruba.

Aruba's growing economy and suburbanization is often faced with economic as well as social pressure to preserve remaining natural areas,  protect its healthy environment  and maintain adequate  scenery for tourism. There is an intrinsic need for reliable information at the interface between the environment,  the economy and the community.

The  CBS, in line with its role as an information carrier,  is the ideal  instrument  to  collect,  aggregate and analyze information and can play its role well as provider for  an integrative socio-economically and environmentally sound policy. An important landmark is reached already in 2014 with the EU pre-proposal, together with TNO,  of  a multi-scale international research in which Aruba plays an important factor. When acknowledged, the research will cover many of the areas as discussed in this paper, already.

In the underlying document  we  address  the  topics planned to be handled by the section "Environmental Statistics" in Aruba and discuss the opportunities that lie ahead to conform to  international  and local standards.
