  1. BACKGROUND

The Japan Caribbean Climate Change Partnership (JCCCP) Project is a regional Project with the overall objective of assisting countries to enhance their capacities in climate change adaptation and mitigation. Participating countries are Jamaica, Guyana, Suriname, St Lucia, Grenada, St Vincent, Belize and Dominica.? UNDP serves as the overall implementing partner for the project through its regional office in Barbados.

The Project, which is financed by the Government of Japan, seeks, among other activities in Grenada, to implement Community Based Pilot Demonstration Project in the priority areas of Sustainable Agriculture, Community Based Climate Smart Resilient Infrastructure & Water Resources Management.

The Pilot Project entitled “Chambord Water Project”, is one of them; and aims to implement activities that will maximise farmers access to water, especially during the dry periods. Under this pilot initiative the Ministry of Agriculture in collaboration with the Chambord farmer group seek to establish communal water management infrastructure to address water accessibility for improved productivity for the Chambord Farmers. Water is to be abstracted from the Morne Fendue river to supply water for irrigation for 100 farmers. The related project outputs are outlined below:

Related Pilot Project Outputs

  1. Water Demand Study - to determine the expected water demand for the farmers and assess suitable levels of abstraction from the target source, i.e.; Morne Fendue River
  2. Installation of Irrigation Infrastructure - Development of water management infrastructure that will pipe some of the excess water that flows from the St. Patrick/Morne Fendue River into the main Chambord retention pond

The UNDP Barbados and the OECS is therefore seeking the services of a consultant, to conduct a water demand study for the Chambord estate area, towards meeting the stated outputs
