National Recovery and Resilience Plan (NRRP): The NRRP was prepared in the aftermath of Hurricanes Irma and Maria, under the overall leadership of the Government of Sint Maarten, with the generous financial support of the Government of the Netherlands, and the strategic support of the World Bank Group. The overarching goal of the NRRP is to restore, secure, and strengthen the well-being of the people of Sint Maarten. This requires a resilient community in a healthy living environment; a resilient, growing, and more diversified economy; and a transparent, effective government with enhanced capacity. The NRRP was prepared by more than 170 national and international experts. They collected, validated and analyzed data on the damages, losses and needs of Sint Maarten in the aftermath of Hurricanes Irma and Maria.
As the roadmap for the recovery process, the NRRP plays an important role in the planning and preparation of future projects. The NRRP prioritizes immediate, short-, medium- and long-term needs for the recovery, reconstruction and resilience of Sint Maarten. The Plan includes estimates of the financial requirements, costs and investments that are necessary to build Sint Maarten back better.
