The United Nations Development Programme in Barbados and the Organisation of Eastern Caribbean States (OECS) is currently in partnership with the Government of Grenada in the conduct of its Constitutional Reform Project. This exercise represents the culmination of ongoing efforts by the government and people of Grenada to adopt a constitutional framework which can be considered to be a reflection of the aspirations and developmental ambitions of the modern Grenadian state.

Keith Mitchell, Prime Minister Government of Grenada, members of the national Constitutional Reform Advisory Committee and representatives of the international development agencies working in the sub region. This meeting looked at ways at which regional development partners can lend technical and other tangible forms of support to the people of Grenada as they continue this critical development exercise, particularly in the areas of legislative drafting, electoral support and capacity building for the undertaking of a national referendum on the proposed slate of constitutional amendments, scheduled for mid-2015.
