|Suriname is a country with particular development potentials. To guarantee a sustainable and efficient utilization of these potentials, it is important that a national development vision is formulated, whereby it must consider the international conventions the state is committed to.
When the territory of Suriname is been analyzed it can be conclude that it is utilized inefficient. The economic and development activities are concentrated in the capital Paramaribo. This results in the unstructured physical expansion of Paramaribo. Meanwhile the development potentials are concentrated in the southern part of the country, just an area that is not developed.
Suriname can use the formulated development vision as a communication or negotiation tool because:
- Suriname is committed to the international conventions of basic laws related to native and traditional communes. These communes are mostly concentrated in the southern part of the country.
- Most of the coastal region in the northern part of Suriname is property of the citizens in the country or domain ground on which citizen established a concise title. The implementation of the development vision will be only successful if the government comes to terms with the owners.
There are enough reasons for the government to formulate a development vision, together with stakeholders. This has to result in an efficient special use, whereby it is important that development potentials are used on a sustainable way.
The paper describes chances, possibilities and conditions for sustainable development in Suriname.
