Interreg V-A - France (Saint Martin-Sint Maarten)
The Interreg V Saint Martin – Sint Maarten cooperation programme for the period 2014-2020 focuses on cross-border cooperation between the French outermost region of Saint Martin and the Dutch overseas country and territory (OCT) of Sint Maarten.
- Improving the level of infrastructure in the field of water and sanitation, as well as environmental protection, in particular through the construction of a cross-border waste treatment plant (total cost: EUR 6.6 million, including EUR 5.5 million from the ERDF). The programme also includes protection measures for biodiversity and ecosystems in the Simpson Bay lagoon.
- Preventing risks of flooding through better management and control of rainwater, especially in the Belle-Plaine border area where recurring floods regularly cause considerable damage (total cost: EUR 3.6 million, including a contribution of EUR 3 million from the ERDF).
In addition, EUR 1.8 million, including EUR 1.5 million from the ERDF, is set aside for technical assistance.
This programme should also involve the European Development Fund (EDF) in relation to the construction of the cross-border treatment plant (which will be located on the Dutch side of the island).
- Construction of a waste treatment plant at Cole Bay and pipes connecting it to around 15 000 inhabitants on either side of the border.
- Regeneration of more than 800 hectares of the Simpson Bay lagoon.
- A 50% reduction in the population exposed to risks of flooding.
