The G-CREWS project identifies high vulnerability of the water resources and agriculture sector of Grenada due to climate change related events and aims to create both preparatory and mitigatory systems to achieve resilience and sustainability. This project presents an opportunity to compressively mainstream and implement climate resilience. The project’s holistic approach addresses two main vulnerabilities of Grenada: freshwater availability and disaster preparedness. The project supports the water sector’s comprehensive transformation on multiple levels, which represents a nationwide ‘paradigm shift’ for Grenada’s overall resilience. This paradigm shift will include citizens and businesses as water users, the public sector as provider of potable water and infrastructure, and behavioural changes triggered through appropriate governance, regulation, economic incentives and raising awareness.
