Expression of Interest for the Provision of Irrigation Equipment

Climate-Resilient Water Sector in Grenada (G-CREWS) Challenge Fund for Agriculture

The Government of Grenada, in partnership with the German Development Corporation (GIZ), is implementing the Climate-Resilient Water Sector in Grenada (G-CREWS) Project. This project is jointly financed by the Green Climate Fund (GCF) and the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Nuclear Safety and Consumer Protection (BMUV) under its International Climate Initiative (IKI) and the Government of Grenada. Over 6-years the Government of Grenada, the Grenada Development Bank (GDB) and the National Water and Sewerage Authority (NAWASA) in partnership with the German Development Corporation (GIZ) will implement the project’s five components.


The GDB as part of G-CREWS is currently implementing the Challenge Fund for water users in the Tourism and Agricultural sectors. The purpose of the Challenge Fund is to increase the resilience of these two commercial sectors which are both highly vulnerable to projected climate change impacts such as reduced precipitation and droughts.


The Fund promotes the adoption of water-efficient solutions in the agriculture and tourism sectors by using grants from the GCF to facilitate water auditing and solution design at no cost to the beneficiary and to incentivise significant private co-finance for the purchase of water-efficient equipment.
