Curaçao, also part of the Dutch Caribbean, is known for its colorful colonial architecture, vibrant arts scene, and diverse cultural heritage.
The capital city, Willemstad, is a UNESCO World Heritage site famous for its pastel-colored buildings lining the waterfront. The island's unique blend of Dutch, Caribbean, and Afro-Caribbean influences is reflected in its cuisine, music, and festivals. Beyond its cultural attractions, Curaçao offers excellent diving and snorkeling opportunities in its crystal-clear waters, vibrant coral reefs, and underwater caves.
Following the transition of Curaçao from a member of the Dutch Federation to an individual country with the Kingdom of The Netherlands, UNDP supported the Government of Curaçao with capacity for nation building, the main objective being to enhance capacity within the government towards effective management and sustainable development.
As well as supporting the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals and dealing with issues of climate change, UNDP works to strengthen national digitalization efforts in Curacao.
