It is an ambitious goal that requires that everything that CBBD undertakes in the coming years must be result-oriented, according to De Boon. That also requires selectivity. The new chairman, Willem Sederel, added: “The idea is to have a sort of Top 10 of projects every year that we follow closely with advice and action, for example by making use of our network within the chemical industry, agribusiness or in Brussels. The CBBD foundation will get to work on supporting 2 or 3 large projects per year. This means, for example: providing financing, knowledge and manpower with partners to set up the projects, build consortia, lobby and help make scaling up possible.” The ecosystem in the Delta region offers numerous facilities for this.
