Grenada is taking important steps to further protect its marine environment while creating opportunities for the sector. Pure Grenada is working with the Caribbean Public Health Agency (CARPHA) to reduce marine waste coming from pleasure vessels such as yachts.
The project dubbed ‘Integrating Water, Land and Ecosystem Management in the Caribbean for Small Island Developing States’, will examine Grenada and Carriacou’s current capacity and create research-based solutions to deal with waste in an eco-friendly manner.
Grenada is also set to implement a Marine Waste Management policy with amendments to the existing legislation and the introduction of accompanying regulations. This policy will help the sustainability of Grenada’s fisheries.
