The R’s (Reduce, Reuse and Recycle) for Climate Resilience Wastewater Systems in Barbados (3R-CReWS)

Increased drought periods have supressed Barbados’ internal renewable water resources (IRWR) as a result of Climate Change. In addition, scarce annual rainfall occurs more frequently as hurricanes and storms cause powerful high-speed runoff that meekly contribute to IRWR, however associated storm waters contribute to infiltration on Barbados’ wastewater management system.

With GCF support this project will reduce the stress of IRWR with treated wastewater to increase water and food security (WFS). Support from the AE, the Caribbean Community Climate Change Centre (CCCCC), will ensure implementation of adaptation measures to: (1) educate Barbadians and visitors about CC and WFS with respect to wastewater reduction, reuse and recycling, (2) reduce CO2 emissions from wastewater treatment (3) build climate resilience in the wastewater treatment process.
