Green Climate Fund Supports $42 Million USD Grenada Water Resiliency Project


The Climate Resilience in Grenada's Water Sector (G-Crews) project, whose US$42- million budget will be mostly met by the US$35-million grant from the Green Climate Fund, is designed to tackle water issues brought about by climate change. Among the various components of the project are a challenge fund for two of the biggest users of water in the island, agriculture and tourism; expanding the infrastructure of the island's National Water and Sewerage Authority (NAWASA); and retrofitting existing infrastructure to reduce leaks in the distribution system, as well as to better cope with extreme weather events such as hurricanes.
