National IWRM policy resurfaces in Grenada

Posted: 2013-03-01

After a two-year lapse, there is renewed interest in implementing a national IWRM policy in Grenada. 

In late 2011, GWP Caribbean was requested by the Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries to provide technical assistance to identify the next steps needed to put the country's IWRM policy into operation. GWP Caribbean contracted a consultant to review the current status and advise on the next steps for moving the policy forward. To support the consultant's work, GWP Caribbean, in collaboration with the National Water and Sewerage Authority (NAWASA) and the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries, held a national IWRM Policy Stakeholder Consultation in March 2012 to collect input for the action plan for water policy legislation and implementation.

This change in attitude can be linked to GWP Caribbean's long-standing contribution to IWRM in the country. In addition, GWP Caribbean has a strong network of partners in Grenada, including NAWASA, and the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries which has the mandate for water resources management.
