Vision Statement

Maintaining a healthy natural environment is also imperative as part of Grenada’s efforts to reduce vulnerability to climate change and ecosystem based adaptation is a priority for Grenada.

Grenada’s economy is very dependent on healthy coastal areas, our beaches, coral reefs and mangroves all provide many ecosystem, social and economic benefits, therefore it is important to protect them from the adverse impacts of climate change. Grenada is in the advanced stages of developing its integrated coastal zone management policy and management system with the aim of facilitating integrative planning and management processes with the view to preserving and enhancing coastal ecosystems and ecosystem services while enabling social and economic development.
