ST. GEORGE’S, GRENADA, August 3, 2016: The Governments of Grenada, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, and Saint Lucia are collaborating with the World Bank to implement a Tourism Competitiveness Program with the objective to lay the foundation to improve the competitiveness of the tourism sector in the OECS region through (a) increasing tourism spending at selected pilot program locations in each of the participating countries; (b) establishing a strategic approach to tourism development; (c) facilitating the movement of people among participating islands, using existing ferry systems; and (d) supporting better quality of services in the tourism sector.

In Grenada, among other things, the program will finance physical infrastructure including the improvement/ rehabilitation of the historic site of Fort George.

A prerequisite for obtaining funding for the Project is the preparation of an Environmental and Social Management Framework in accordance with the World Bank’s Policy guidelines on Environmental and Social Safeguards, as well as Local Laws and Procedures.

This Framework will then guide the project management team during project implementation to ensure that all environmental and social concerns are adequately addressed. 

A draft copy of the Environmental and Social Management Framework is now available to the general public for feedback and comment at the following link:
