Grenada’s Ministry of Environment is launching a new climate change project in partnership with the United Nations Division for Sustainable Development.

Grenada is the only Caribbean country to launch what is, for now, a pilot project, called “Integrating Climate Change into National Sustainable Development Strategies and Plans in Latin America and the Caribbean.”

The programme, which has appointed three Grenadian consultants, will look at three main areas potentially impacted by climate change: water resource management, renewal energy options to be used after natural disasters, and the restoration of costal ecosystems.

It will also build a “green economy for sustainable development” in Carriacou and Petite Martinique.

The Grenadian consultants met last week with UN representatives and officials from the Ministry of Environment.

Grenada’s work on climate change, and particularly its leadership on climate issues, has recently found praise, particularly from the United Kingdom (to learn more, click here).

Guatemala and Bolivia are the two other participants in the programme.
