The Growth and Poverty Reduction Strategy (GPRS) articulates the Government of Grenada’s strategic vision for promoting economic growth and significantly reducing poverty in Grenada, Carriacou and Petit Martinique. The strategy is informed and guided in part by their progress towards achieving the Millennium Development Goals.

In the document, climate resilience is named as one the four strategic orientations for achieving the nation's medium term development vision.

Conclusions include the overall profile of sectors vis-à-vis population interest, work experience, skills and training, that clearly show opportunity for the SMEs and agriculture; even moreso than earlier-identified sectors. Skills are examined in detail in the survey as a factor in resilience and sustainability in the face of change from multiple factors, including climate.
