The Ministry of Natural Resources announced yesterday that it will begin consultations on the first draft of Guyana’s National REDD (Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and forest Degradation) + Strategy from March 7-8, 2019 in Georgetown.
Facilitated by the Forest Carbon Partnership Facility (FCPF-REDD+) Project, this round of consultations include a national two-day workshop with representatives from all 10 administrative regions. It targets stakeholders from government, private sector, civil society, indigenous peoples and forest-dependent communities.
The Ministry indicated that the workshop will provide information on the design of Guyana’s REDD+ Strategy and get stakeholders’ input to improve the draft, as well as identify how they can participate in future implementation. Stakeholders will get the opportunity to express their ideas on what the REDD+ Strategy options for Guyana could look like when implemented, and to identify gaps in current designs.
The Ministry said that in coming months, the consultations will extend to Regions One, Seven, Eight and Ten, after which there will another round of national cluster workshops in Georgetown to verify the draft strategy.
Last April, the Ministry contracted a consortium led by Winrock International and Conservation International to design Guyana’s REDD+ Strategy and Strategic Environmental and Social Assessment (SESA) Report including Environment and Social Management Framework (ESMF). These are all critical components of Guyana’s REDD+ Readiness Preparation Plan (R-PP) that prepares the country to access future funding to Reduce Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation.
