Project Description

According to the Green Climate Fund, this project will help the water sector in Grenada to undergo a comprehensive transformation on multiple levels. To obtain this objective, the project has __ components:

  1. Climate-resilient water governance. Under this component, a water resource management unit will be established, a climate-responsive water tariff will implemented, and there will be a cross-sectoral mainstreaming of climate resilience into policies, plans, and regulations of water-related sectors.
  2. Climate-resilient water users. This component aims to strengthen adaptive capacity and reduce risk exposure through creating a challenge fund to promote the adoption of water-efficient solutions in the agriculture and tourism sectors. It will also raise awareness of the issues through awareness, education, and outreach.
  3. Climate resilient water supply systems. This component involves investments in infrastructure to assure water availability, increasing existing potable water storage capacity in medical centers, nd reduce disruptions in Grenada's water supply systems. 
  4. Additional contributions of the water sector to Grenada's Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC) under the Paris Climate Agreement. In this component, strategies for reducing water loss will be implemented.
  5. Regional learning and replication. This component allows fo the creation of best practice sharing mechanisms and learnings in the region. 
People Affected By This Project

The project proposal states that the whole population of Grenada (approx. 106,000 people, of whom about 50 % are of female female) will be beneficiaries of this project.

The Independent Redress Mechanism (IRM) is the independent complaint mechanism for a person or people who have been or believe they are likely to be adversely affected by a project or programme funded by the Green Climate Fund. If you submit a complaint to the IRM, it may seek to address the issues raised by facilitating a problem-solving dialogue or, if that is not possible, conducting an independent investigation into whether the GCF has complied with its environmental and social policies. The IRM is newly created and is still in the process of developing its procedures and website. More information about the IRM and how you can file a complaint is forthcoming. You can contact the IRM at
