In 2012, the National Cultural Policy of Grenada recognized the Cultural Heritage Tourism as among the major income-earners for Grenada but products and services need to be upgraded and expanded. It is stated that the Government of Grenada will give direction to the Division of Culture, in collaboration with the National Trust and Ministry of Tourism,” to carry out an inventory of heritage sites and cultural products that will provide added value to the tourism product…” and encourage them “to develop, and promote, the stories relevant to the Grenadian experience that can bring added value to the tourism product, including those relevant to certain communities” However, there is an urgent need to create and recognize the heritage sites as a first step to adopt and provide a legal framework for the creation of Heritage management, promotion and safeguarding measures in Grenada.
The Online National Heritage Sites is the official register which contains over 22 natural and physical heritage sites located at Grenada, Carriacou and Petite Martinique. This register can be used/access by Local Community, Schools, Universities, Researchers, Tour Operators, International Organizations and Government (Physical Planning; Ministry of Tourism, Civil Aviation and Culture; Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry & Fisheries) for Grenada’s Heritage identification, management and preservation. Local community can identify and know where the natural and physical heritage sites are located as a way to create awareness about the management, promotion and preservation of the Grenada’s tangible heritage.
