Adapting to the Effects of Drought through increasing Water Storage Capacity to address Climate Change on Canouan.
Deficiencies in water supplies, primarily affect the poorest segaments opf the population, particularly during extended dry spells. These factors leave the population of Canouan very vulnerable to drought conditions. Men, women, children and the elderly are all impacted by drought conditions. Water for residential use is obtained largely from collection of roof water which is stored in cisterns or above ground in ferro-cemment or plastic tanks. Most residences are in need of greater volumes of water to meet the expansion of households and to adjust to improved health standards and life style changes. There is urgent need to ensure that the population has a safe and adequate supply of water.

The objectives of the project include:

1. To provide 75 1000-gallon water tanks to vulnerable residents of Canouan and Union Island by January 2019.
2. To procure equipment and material for installation of water tanks by December 2018
3. To increase public awareness on water conservation practices to approximately 100 households, including proper sanitation, as well as sensitization on the effects of climate change by October 2018.
