This study represents a first attempt to define the major changes needed to induce the transformation of the economy of Carriacou and Petite Martinique towards a greener economy that would facilitate sustainable development and enhance the well-being of the population.
This comprehensive and integrated assessment, performed by national, regional and international experts, demonstrates that opportunities exist to initiate a major coordinated transformation of the economy of Carriacou and Petite Martinique and that such a transformation may indeed provide important knowledge and information for the implementation of green economy strategies for these islands, for the whole country of Grenada and for other Small Island Developing States (SIDS).
Furthermore, the limited assessments, based on expert analysis and available data, reveal that ample benefits can be derived from a concerted effort to promote green technologies and integrated systems that support sustainable development.
