Grenada is the the 15th country to share its National Adaptation Plans in NAP Central.
As climate change adaptation is a priority for the Government of Grenada, their National Adaptation Plan (NAP) 2017-2021 will provide a strategic, coordinating framework for building climate resilience in Grenada. It will guide the various stakeholders in understanding the country’s risks and vulnerabilities from climate change as well as the appropriate actions in addressing those risks. It is also intended to help development partners identify resilience building activities to support, and to mobilise climate finance from a range of sources. It emphasizes that while additional investment is required to build climate resilience in Grenada, it must not divert scarce local resources from ongoing development priorities like education, health and social development.
Grenada’s NAP will serve as the basis for more detailed project proposals and for discussions with donors. It will be one of Grenada’s main mechanisms for accessing external climate finance and will play a crucial role as a vehicle for strategic investments in Grenada’s climate-resilient development. Furthermore, the NAP will provide the framework for further integration of climate change considerations into planning and budgetary processes to “climate-proof” public and private investments, ensuring efficient spending of scarce financial resources.
Grenada NAP identified eight programmes of action with corresponding goals and indicators, these are:
- Institutional arrangements
- Water availability
- Food security
- Ecosystem resilience
- Integrated coastal zone management
- Resilient infrastructure and sustainable land management
- Disaster risk reduction and disease prevention
- Climate and sea level rise data and projections
