Governance

The Aruba National Park Foundation, officially known as Fundacion Parke Nacional Aruba (FPNA), is an independent nature conservation foundation which manages a large surface area of Aruba, initially the Arikok National Park (2000) and more recently the RAMSAR site #198 Spanish Lagoon (2017). This task became even more complex with the addition of the Parke Marino Aruba, consisting of 4 Marine Protected Areas (MPAs), at the end of 2018, as well as the addition of 11 other designated protected (terrestrial) areas in 2020. With these additions, 24.3% of Aruba’s terrestrial surface and 0.2% of its territorial waters is now protected and managed by FPNA. Hence, the need to develop the organization and governance structure accordingly.

Two-tier governance structure

While FPNA has from the onset operated under a one-tier governance structure, in the final quarter of 2018 preparations were made to amend the Articles of Association so that the Foundation can operate under a professional Executive Board as well as a Board of Supervisors as of 2019. In present times, good corporate governance demands a managing board to be under supervision. An effective and professional management team and management structure for the Foundation would therefore include the introduction of a Two-Tier Board Structure: a professional Executive Board and a Board of Supervisors.

The powers, duties, and responsibilities of FPNA’s Boards are determined by governance regulations and FPNA’s own constitution and by-laws.
