  • Description:
    "Sustainable Grenadines Inc. and its partners were able to utilize the small grants funds to build reef management capacity in the Grenada Bank by strengthening coral reef area networks through monitoring & evaluation, education/outreach & enhanced decision-making for sustainable marine and coastal conservation. Small grants funds and collaborative efforts were used to address priority capacity building needs for site level management of MPAs in the Grenada bank and develop capacity among members of the Grenadines Network of Marine Protected Areas. At the network level, the Grenadines Network of MPAs was able to host two regional meetings for capacity building and networking, sponsor travel and accommodation for training attachment and exchange programs, and conduct/promote outreach efforts for public information and improved communication and networking opportunities. Individual members carried out activities agreed upon by the network through small grants funded through this project to address deficiencies in enforcement regimes and stakeholder compliance as well as biophysical monitoring and socioeconomic monitoring needs. The project brought together staff from a number of member groups, government agencies, communities and other stakeholders to improve and expand the impact of the network. This project contributed significantly to the foundation of collaborative, consistent management that was developed during Phase I of this project, and will have a lasting impact on the development of a resilient network of marine areas that are effectively managed, function effectively for community well-being and biodiversity protection, and act as a critical climate change response mechanism"--Summary of accomplishments.
