In the First Committee of the UN General Assembly in October 2022, the Caribbean Community (CARICOM), of which Grenada is a member, announced that they were all either states parties or signatories to the TPNW or ‘in the process of acceding to' the Treaty. The statement further said 'CARICOM is concerned that nuclear weapons continue to figure as a key component of the security doctrine of some states. Promotion of or reliance on nuclear deterrence as a security strategy merely perpetuates the false notion that we are safer by the assurance of mutual destruction. CARICOM resoundly rejects this approach and reminds that the very existence of nuclear weapons continues to present an unacceptable risk to both people and planet. It is for this reason that CARICOM Member States support the implementation of the [TPNW].'1
- Grenada should submit its declaration under Article 2 of the TPNW to the UN Secretary-General without further delay.
- Grenada should continue to encourage other states to adhere to the TPNW.
- Grenada should ensure that all the TPNW obligations are implemented domestically, through legal, administrative, and other necessary measures.@Grenada should conclude and bring into force an Additional Protocol with the IAEA, and upgrade to a Modified Small Quantities Protocol.
