Prioritising water, land and ecosystems management and climate resilience in OECS
Five OECS countries (Antigua and Barbuda, Grenada, St Kitts and Nevis, Saint Lucia, and St Vincent and the Grenadines) are participating in the Global Environment Facility-funded Integrating Water, Land and Ecosystems Management in Caribbean Small Island Developing States (GEF IWEco) Project.
Four of the countries (Antigua and Barbuda, St Kitts and Nevis, Saint Lucia, and St Vincent and the Grenadines) have national sub-projects that will develop and implement targeted, innovative, climate resilient approaches to land, water and ecosystem management. Direct funding from the GEF for these four projects amounts to approximately US$4 million.
Grenada, along with all participating countries (the others being Barbados, Cuba, the Dominican Republic, Jamaica and Trinidad and Tobago) will benefit from regional project activities aimed at strengthening policy, legislative and institutional frameworks, strengthening monitoring and evaluation, and public awareness.
