“Guyana is venturing into new territory with its Low Carbon Development Strategy (LCDS) and it is a model-building exercise that will have challenges.

“Addressing a key workshop comprising of local and foreign experts from climate and forestry fields, the official acknowledged that the road will not be easy since “we are in a sense, charting a new course, there is no formula or blue-print to follow, rather we are developing this to suit our needs and conditions….”

“Present in Guyana from overseas for the workshop were representatives from the Clinton Foundation, US Forestry Service, Canadian Forestry Service, Winrock International, Food and Agricultural Organisation, Australia Department of Climate Change, UNDP, World Resources Institute, ESRI and the Meridien Institute.”
