This project seeks to demonstrate a model for effective integrated landscape management encompassing the strengthening of an existing protected area and establishment of its buffer zone in order to reduce threats to biodiversity and ecological functioning.
The project will strengthen land, forest and reef management processes (ecosystem functions) and biodiversity conservation on all terrestrial landscapes and marine and seascapes in Grenada, especially within and around marine and terrestrial protected areas.
The project will expand the existing Protected Areas (PA) system through the establishment of two new terrestrial PAs and three new marine PAs and, will address systemic issues by implementing key elements of St. Kitts and Nevis' Protected Areas System Plan.
The objective of the Project is to reduce GHG emissions from fossil fuel-based power generation by demonstrating the exploitation of renewable energy resources for electricity generation in Barbados. To achieve this objective and strengthen the country’s Disaster Risk Response (DRR), the Project will promote decentralized solar photo-voltaic electricity generation in Barbados at community development centers and poly-clinics throughout the country.
