Climate Resilient Water Sector in Grenada (G-CREWS)
Creating a climate resilient water sector in Grenada through increased freshwater availability and demand reduction measures.
Grenada relies heavily upon surface water and rainwater catchment for its water supply. Climate change is aggravating water scarcity problems with increasing average temperatures, more erratic rainfall, more frequent heavy rainfall events, and saltwater intrusion in groundwater due to sea level rise. G-CREWS will support the water sector by reducing water demand and increasing water availability.
A Water Resource Management Unit (WRMU) will be established, and a water tariff will create climate-responsive price signals for users, whilst providing resources to upgrade infrastructure. A challenge fund will promote water efficiency in the agriculture and tourism sectors. Infrastructure investments will include building water storage capacities, drilling new wells, and creating new rainwater harvesting systems. Disaster resilience will be improved including through remote monitoring, whilst renewable energy solutions will be introduced for water pumping and treatment.
The project has an estimated lifespan of 6 years.
