Brief Description

The Cabinet of Grenada has determined that “Strengthen interventions to combat domestic violence and child abuse” is a strategic priority in the Medium Term Agenda (MTA) for 2019-2021. This is part of the pillar “Enhancing social capital and citizen wellbeing”. The Ministry of Social Development, Housing and Community Empowerment (MOSDHCE) is the Lead Ministry on this priority. In this regard, a Public Service Delivery Agreement (PSDA) has been developed and signed by seven Ministries of Government as well as the Royal Grenada Police Force (RGPF) and the Child Protection Authority (CPA), which together form the Cluster to address this priority. This PSDA identifies the key outputs that will be delivered for each year of the MTA. To facilitate implementation, a new Technical Working Group is being formed. It will be comprised of senior technical staff members from each partner entity, and chaired by the MoSDHCE. Monitoring will be done by the Office of the Cabinet.
