GWP-C Supports Implementation of IWWM Projects in the Caribbean

Global Water Partnership-Caribbean (GWP-C), in collaboration with the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) Cartagena Convention Secretariat/Caribbean Environment Programme (CEP), have funded several projects under the Multilateral Environmental Agreements in ACP Countries.

Four (4) Partners of the Global Water Partnership-Caribbean (GWP-C) have secured grant funding from the organisation and its partners to implement a short-term, small-scale Integrated Water and Wastewater Management (IWWM) project in their respective countries. These Partners include:

  1. Integrated Health Outreach for their project on 'Water Treatment Systems in Antigua and Barbuda"
  2. Dominica Water and Sewerage Company Ltd. for their project on "Constructed Wetland for Wastewater Treatment in Dominica"
  3. Brightline Institute and Global Partnership Inc. for their project on "Constructed Wetland for Wastewater Treatment in the Dominican Republic"
  4. Richmond Vale Academy (RVA) for their project on "Greywater Systems in St. Vincent and the Grenadines".

The awarded grants, come as a result of the successful selection of concepts notes submitted by the four (4) organisations based on a “Call for Short-Term Small-Scale Integrated Water Resources and Wastewater Management (IWWM) Projects in the Caribbean” by GWP-C and its partners.

The Call which specifically targeted GWP-C Partners based in the Caribbean, focused on projects with an objective to "implement innovative decentralised, rural community-based interventions for wastewater management with a focus on nature-based solutions and use of wastewater as a resource".
