Grenada Constitutional Reform Project - International Development Partner MeetingNov 19, 2014
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.
In lending support to this venture, the UNDP on November 19th, 2014 facilitated and hosted a meeting with the Hon. 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.
The UNDP, in keeping with its core commitments, institutional focus and competencies as captured under the United Nations Development Assistance Framework for Barbados and the OECS 2012-2016 and the 2102-2016 Multi-Country Programme Action Plan (M-CPAP), will continue to draw on all available resources within the overall UN system to assist the Grenadian people in this noteworthy venture.
