The Physical Development Plan provides a vision for the sustainable growth and development of the nation by setting out policies to guide relationships among land uses, built form, mobility, community facilities and physical infrastructure. It is also intended to be a framework to facilitate and guide investment, both public and private, in Barbados for the next 10 years to advance a healthy, prosperous and resilient nation
The Development Plan 2017-2021 (OP –Dutch abbreviation– 2017-2021) must be seen as providing
a framework for the policy programs and measures in the coming five years: the plan lays down
where Suriname wants to be in 2021, and considering where we are now, how to arrive at that
destination. In a technical sense it formulates the development goals and outcome for at least the
coming five years and states the principles that will be followed in the development process.
