Status of initiative: N/a
Description/achievement of initiative

Guyana is reaching a new stage in its national development. As the country's first generation of reforms and infrastructural development nears completion, the Government is embarking on a new wave of reforms, coupled
with further expansion of the country's strategic economic infrastructure. Over the past two decades, Guyana
has transitioned to a multi-party democracy and market-based economy.
This version of Guyana's Low Carbon Development Strategy builds on both the insights gained during the national consultation on the first and second drafts of the strategy, and on the progress made within the international framework for REDD+ and broader climate change negotiations and initiatives. It sets out how Guyana can provide the world with a working example of how immediate action can stimulate the creation of a low-deforestation, low-carbon, climate-resilient economy.
