Socio-economic monitoring (SocMon) in Grenada commenced in late May 2008 with a training workshop in the east coast town of Grenville, the site selected for the project. SocMon Grenada was part of a regional project Socio-economic monitoring by Caribbean Fishery Authorities (Fisheries SocMon) funded by a US Coral Reef Conservation grant for and jointly implemented by the Center for Resource Management and Environmental Studies (CERMES) of the University of the West Indies, Cave Hill Campus, and the Caribbean Regional Fisheries Mechanism (CRFM). Grenada opted to participate in this project because of the perception at the Fisheries Division that certain east coast communities were impacting on coastal ecosystems in a manner that was likely to negatively affect the quality of life of those communities over time.
