Climate change adaptation in Grenada: water resources, coastal ecosystems and renewable energy

This study attempts to encourage practical implementation of climate change adaptation programmes and their integration into national plans for sustainable development. It argues that the assessment process must evolve over time to fit continuously changing climate change impacts, conditions, priorities and national sustainable development criteria. The publication summarises initial analysis, findings and proposals of three critical areas for Grenada: water resources, costal ecosystems and renewable energy systems. The study concludes with a number of recommendations. For example, in terms of managing water resources and reducing the demand for water at the household level, it is recommended that the government provide a package of incentives for the procurement of low volume and low energy faucets.
