As a small island developing state, Grenada recognises and appreciates that tourism will continue to play a major role in the achievement of the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
The 17 goals adopted by all United Nations Member States as a universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity by 2030.
All 17 Goals interconnect; meaning that success in one affects the success of the others. It is, therefore, against this backdrop that the tourism development in Levera, St Patrick, is committed to ensuring that it is done in harmony with various national, regional and international environmental policies and conventions to which Grenada has committed itself.
One such commitment is the 2012 declaration of the island’s only RAMSAR site. The Levera Wetland, according to the RAMSAR listing, is in boundaries with the Levera Pond Protected Area, which extends from the area surrounding the Levera Pond, including the Pond and mangroves, across to Levera Beach, the marine areas between Levera Beach and Sugar Loaf Island, and Sugar Loaf Island itself.
