The Barbados Water Authority (BWA) has received a US$45.2 million cash injection to better secure the island’s water resources.

News of this came late last week as BWA general manager Keithroy Halliday and other BWA officials travelled to the Songdo, South Korea, to present their proposal to the 19th Meeting of the Green Climate Fund.

The project, called the Water Sector Resilience Nexus For Sustainability Project for Barbados (WSRN S-Barbados), was presented in collaboration with the Caribbean Community Climate Change Centre. It is set to bolster the island’s water resilience to storms, climate change and disruptions in supply, and also promote innovation for climate resilience in the sector.

The project is also set to help push water conservation practices in households and communities, and improve the availability of potable water across the island. Another aim is to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. (AD)
