The Climate-Resilient Water Sector in Grenada (G-CREWS) Project aims to make the water sector in Grenada more resilient to climate change and to strengthen the efficiency of its management. The project will support the water sector’s comprehensive transformation on multiple levels.

With rising average temperatures, more unpredictable rainfall, more frequent heavy rainfall events, and saltwater intrusion in groundwater linked to sea-level rise, climate change is exacerbating water scarcity issues. G-CREWS will support the water sector by reducing water demand and increasing water availability.
This approach involves citizens and businesses as water users and the public sector as the provider of potable water and infrastructure. Through appropriate governance, regulation, economic incentives and awareness-raising, behavioural changes will be triggered.
The project takes into account these five components:
