Since Grenada is such a small island, it remains vulnerable to the effects of climate change.1 Hurricanes, which disrupt the agricultural process, are predicted to increase in the coming years, as will as droughts and a decline in overall rainfall.2 Sea levels are also predicted to rise and could cause the destruction of infrastructures necessary to transportation.3 The UNDP has begun to aid the Grenadian government in the development of climate change mitigation plans in order to create fiscally responsible adaptation mechanisms.4 Climate change will disrupt economic trade due to the countryâ's high dependence on imports and increase the vulnerabilities of the financial systems.5 The government plans to ensure that any mitigation and adaptation programs are implemented at all levels of government and society.6 Show Less

Grenada relies on tourism as its main source of foreign exchange especially since the construction of an international airport in 1985. Hurricanes Ivan (2004) and Emily (2005) severely damaged the agricultural sector - particularly nutmeg and cocoa cultivation - which had been a key driver of economic growth. Grenada has rebounded from the devastating effects of the hurricanes but is now saddled with the debt burden from the rebuilding process. Public debt-to-GDP is nearly 110%, leaving the THOMAS administration limited room to engage in public investments and social spending. Strong performances in construction and manufacturing, together with the development of ...See More tourism and an offshore financial industry, have also contributed to growth in national output; however, economic growth remained stagnant in 2010-12 after a sizeable contraction in 2009, because of the global economic slowdown's effects on tourism and remittances.
