Grenada boasts diverse marine and coastal ecosystems, including mangrove swamps, coral reefs, seagrass beds, beaches, lagoons, dry woodlands and cactus shrub. Its biodiversity is threatened by climate change influences, invasive alien species proliferation, habitat degradation and fragmentation particularly in lowland forests, and pollution of freshwater and coastal receiving environments.
The Grenada Sustainable Development Trust Fund (GSDTF) responds to these threats as it works to catalyze and support the conservation and effective management of coastal, marine and terrestrial ecosystems and sustainable development activities in the country. As at 31 December 2022, the GSDTF has financed 6 projects in areas related to education and training for sustainable livelihoods; restoration of nature reserves; and protected area management.
