  • Challenges and Opportunities for the Energy Sector in the Eastern Caribbean: Grenada Energy Dossier

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Thursday 1 October 2015

    This publication is part of a series produced by the Energy Division of the Infrastructure and Environment Department of the Inter-American Development Bank. It is designed to increase the knowledge base about the composition and organization of the energy sector of Latin American and Caribbean countries. Each dossier describes the energy matrix of the country under analysis and then examines the institutional organization and regulatory framework of the energy sector in that country. This energy dossier focuses on Grenada.

  • INDC of Grenada

    Type: 
    National Plan
    Type of National plan: 
    Country: 

    Grenada commits to reducing its Greenhouse gas emissions by 30% of 2010 by 2025, with an indicative reduction of 40% of 2010 by 2030.The INDC includes a section on Adaptation

  • Potential for geothermal development in Grenada

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Sunday 1 January 1995
    Objective: 

    Grenada has all the attributes necessary for the existence of commercial quality geothermal systems. Reservoirs may be within fractures in the central part of the island where the volcanic is thick enough reach depths of several thousand feet. Plausibly, the underlying carbonate formations may be involved in the northern part the island, particularly beneath Cantle Hill and Chambord.

  • Vulnerability and capacity assessment for the Chemin watershed area in Grenada

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Thursday 1 January 2015
    Objective: 

    Grenada, like other small island developing states in the Caribbean, has certain inherent characteristics that make it vulnerable to the adverse impacts of climate variability and change. These include a limited reserve capacity to handle the effects of natural hazards as well as its location in the path of tropical cyclones of the Atlantic and Caribbean Sea. Additionally, most of the islands’ infrastructure is located within the coastal zone, making it particularly vulnerable to the impacts of sea level rise and coastal flooding.

  • Grenada: a gender impact assessment of hurricane Ivan - making the invisible visible

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Saturday 1 January 2005
    Objective: 

    It became clear from the Gender Impact Assessment of Hurricane Ivan undertaken in Grenada from 13–19 February 2005 that the existing gender inequities in the society rendered women and their dependent children uniquely vulnerable.

    This report was written and recommendations formulated in the contemporary context of reconstruction in Grenada and the population’s awareness of the imminence of another hurricane season for the Caribbean and made recommendations in the areas of education, health, livelihood, and safety, in the context of gender equity.

  • A nation rebuilding: an assessment of reconstruction and economic recovery one year after Hurricane Ivan

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Saturday 1 January 2005
    Objective: 

    Hurricane Ivan struck Grenada on September 7, 2004 and one year later a group of researchers undertook an analysis of the impact of relief work. 

    Large-scale efforts had been mounted by Grenadian Government agencies, the private sector and civil society in Grenada. Several bilateral and multi-lateral agencies as well as international non-governmental organizations (NGOs) provided considerable assistance.

  • Road Map toward integrated water resources management planning for Grenada

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Monday 1 January 2007
    Objective: 

    Aware of the need to manage water resources in Grenada in a sustainable manner, the Ministry of Agriculture took the initiative to develop a “roadmap”, policy and plan for IWRM at the national level.

  • Innovative reef engineering for small island states

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Wednesday 1 January 2014
    Objective: 

    The specific aims of the reef engineering and enhancement project of the AWE initiative to build coastal resillience in the face of climate change were:

    1. To use an eco-engineering approach to reduce the coastal erosion and storm related salt water flooding affecting the Grenville and Telescope area in the northern section of Grenville Bay, Grenada.

    2. To restore the wave-breaking function of the degraded reefs in northern Grenville Bay and to facilitate the reestablishment of coral growth and ecological functions in the Bay.
