Sustainable Livelihood Initiatives
The development of livelihoods is of critical need in the Grenadines. SusGren aims to support a diversity of livelihood opportunities that do not destroy biodiversity or deplete natural resources for future generations. SusGren hopes to reduce pressure on natural capital and biodiversity in the Grenadines, increase the resilience of communities in the face of climate change, and create economic incentives for sustainable resource management. Sustainable livelihood development can involve improving the sustainability of livelihoods that are presently having a negative impact on the environment to lessen or eliminate the negative impact, or developing alternative livelihood options. SusGren works with fisheries to rebuild resources, strengthen fisher organizations and improve livelihoods, while developing sustainable alternatives in agriculture and tourism.
