ABOUT THE 2016 PROGRAM

THE GRENADA RISING SEAS PROJECT

Grenada, like many other small island developing states, is struggling to cope with the devastating effects of global warming. Rising seas and increasingly intense storms will dramatically transform the country’s coastal environment in coming decades, bringing enormous economic and social costs. The impact of these changes is already evident in the capital St. George’s, where rising seas and storm surge threaten this historic inner harbor.

Interns in our 2016 program joined our Grenadian partners to explore climate resilience actions and sustainable development approaches. See their discoveries and analysis here :
