Geographical information system-assisted water availability analysis for Grenada: map compendium

Map compendium of water availability for Grenada, produced as part of the UNEP project, Promoting Rainwater Harvesting in Caribbean Small Island Developing States.

The data presented in the compendium is intended to assist planners in water sector development initiatives through identification of areas over Grenada that the researchers said will require investment in water augmentation measures (based on water availability) such as rainwater harvesting.

They note that the data presented are preliminary and will require validation through field observation.The analyses was restricted to mainland Grenada, given the lack of comparable rainfall data for Carriacou and Petit Martinique.
