As a small island, Grenada is particularly vulnerable to the adverse effects of projected climatic changes. Whilst Grenada has developed several policies and projects relating to adaptation over the years, a strategic and comprehensive approach to adaptation, including coordination across sectors and the implementation of concrete measures is needed. The German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU) committed 5 million EUR to support the country’s climate change adaptation efforts and commissioned GIZ and UNDP to implement the project “Integrated Climate Change Adaptation Strategies” (ICCAS). The overarching goal of the project is to increase resilience of vulnerable communities and ecosystems to climate change risks in Grenada through integrated adaptation approaches. The official launch of the project was in April 2013.
