Incentives for watershed management in the Caribbean: diagnostic studies in Grenada, Jamaica, St. Lucia and Trinidad
This paper presents the findings of a brief study conducted under Phase I of a global initiative of the U.K. Department for International Development, Developing markets for watershed
protection services and improved livelihoods, which is being implemented by IIED in collaboration with local partners. The
project is summarised at Appendix 1. Grenada is a three-island state. The hydrological and institutional issues for watershed management for the larger island of Grenada and the small
islands of Petit Martinique and Cariacou are distinct. This study focussed the resources available on the island of Grenada because of its value as a comparative case in a regional context.
