St. JORIS BAAI

With the economic issues recently unfolding in Curacao (and the region), the natural changes in climate and biodiversity and the negative man-made changes to the environment - there is a great shortage of on-site supporting know-how, technology and professional management that can support a sound and sustainable implementation of desired projects.
Our core demonstration, training, research and teaching programs around these concepts, are based mainly on the Israeli well proven know-how, technology and performance in arid environment, integrated with the expertise of our colleagues from USA - will support future applicable projects in Curacao and throughout the region, in consideration with its tropical-arid environment;
