This paper presents the findings of a brief study conducted under Phase I of a global initiative of the U.K. Department for International Development, Developing markets for watershed~protection services and improved livelihoods, which is being implemented by IIED in collaboration with local partners. The~project is summarised at Appendix 1. Grenada is a three-island state. The hydrological and institutional issues for watershed management for the larger island of Grenada and the small~islands of Petit Martinique and Cariacou are distinct. This study focussed the resources available on the island of Grenada because of its value as a comparative case in a regional context.
