DescriptionThe NCSA process will provide Grenada with the opportunity to articulate a thorough self-assessment and analysis of national capacity needs, priorities and constraints facing national efforts to meet global environmental management objectives as set forth in the Rio conventions and related international instruments. The process will facilitate a cross-sectoral process of consultations, stocktaking, sequencing, and prioritization of capacity needs, especially for identifying obstacles that impede the country from fully meeting its objectives under the relevant conventions.
Implementation StatusApril-June 2003: During the period under review wide ranging stakeholder consultations were held with Government officials and civil society on the genesis of the project, the rationale and objectives, implementation plan, definitional issues, operational principles and benefits of the NCSA. The consultants also conducted reviews of various documentation and used the inputs from these two activities to design a template for the preparation of the NCSA proposal. Coordination meeting was subsequently convened with the consultants, officials of the Ministry of Finance and representative from UNDP to finalize the template and agree on an action plan for the completion of the NCSA proposal.
