Supporting the Administrative Processes for the Establishment of the Water Resources Management Unit (WRMU) and Cross-Sectoral Mainstreaming of Climate Resilience into Policies, Plans and Regulations of Water-Related Sectors
The scope of this service contract is determined by the Climate-Resilient Water Sector in Grenada (G-CREWS) Project, which is jointly implemented by the Grenadian Ministry of Infrastructure Development, Public Utilities, Energy, Transport and Implementation and the German International Development Corporation (GIZ). The G-CREWS project is co-funded by the Green Climate Fund and the Germany’s Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU).
The project supports the integration of climate-resilience into Grenada’s water sector governance by establishing a dedicated Water Resource Management Unit (WRMU), based on the outcome of the drafted Water Policy, and by mainstreaming climate resilience in water sector related policies, plans and regulations. That will ensure sound and climate-responsive regulation of water resource management and will eventually lead to a strengthened institutional and regulatory system for climate-responsive planning and development.
