Grenada: A Nation Rebuilding. An Assessment of Reconstruction and Economic Recovery One Year after Hurricane Ivan

Hurricane Ivan struck Grenada on September 7, 2004. The international and local communities responded with a massive reconstruction and recovery effort. Although the job is far from finished, the reconstruction to date is substantial. Large-scale efforts have been mounted by Grenadian Government agencies, the private sector and civil society in Grenada. Several bilateral and multi-lateral agencies as well as international nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) have provided considerable assistance. The purpose of this report is to provide an overview of the relief and reconstruction programs that have taken place through the efforts of the Grenadian authorities and outside agencies during the past year. While this report was prepared to provide a reference for future analyses of disaster response, it is hoped that it will also be useful to stakeholders in the reconstruction efforts, in the allocation of resources, and in preparation for future programs.
