SXM TF Steering Committee

The Trust Fund is governed by a steering committee composed of one representative from each of the three parties: the Sint Maarten and Netherlands governments, and the World Bank. The steering committee decides by consensus on the allocation of funds to short-, medium-, and long-term recovery projects, capacity building activities, and analytical work. The steering committee meets twice a year and on an ad-hoc basis to approve projects and monitor the progress of the activities financed by the fund.
