GoalsEdit

Project goals include:

ScopeEdit

The scope of this project is all articles which fall within the following categories:

We acknowledge up front that there may be other WikiProjects, both now and in the future, which deal directly with individual nations or areas within the above. We are grateful for their efforts, and will concentrate our own on those areas which are not covered by a currently existing project.

Note that the Bahamas, Bermuda, Guyana, Saint Pierre and Miquelon, Suriname, and the Turks and Caicos Islands, while not Caribbean countries, have also been included within the scope of this project. The Bahamas, Bermuda, Guyana, Suriname, and the Turks and Caicos Islands are members of CARICOM. Saint Pierre and Miquelon is a North Atlantic island which is an overseas territory of France and has common interests with Martinique, Guadeloupe, and Saint Barthélemy.

The Netherlands Antilles dissolved on October 10, 2010.
