OilNow is an online-based Information and Resource Centre which serves to complement the work of all stakeholders in the oil and gas sector in Guyana.

The Ministry of the Presidency in Guyana has secured US$1.5 Million (GY$ 300 Million) to finance the development of the Green State Development Strategy (GSDS). This financing was approved by the Steering Committee of the Guyana REDD+ Investment Fund following the submission of a detailed proposal and work plan. The financing also provides coverage for the development of the GSDS Coordination Desk.

The Department of the Environment said in a statement Wednesday that the coordination desk will be staffed by Guyanese citizens, working in collaboration with the Department of Environment and United Nations Environment Programme to ensure the timely development of the GSDS. Development of the GSDS will be completed by June 2018.

Nationwide consultations and stakeholders’ feedback will guide the development of the seven major themes of the strategy: 1) Green inclusive, structural transformation; 2) Sustainable management of natural resources; 3) Energy – transition towards renewable energy; 4) Resilient infrastructure and spatial development; 5) Human development and wellbeing; 6) Governance and institutional foundations; and, 7) International cooperation, trade and investment.

The Ministry of the Presidency, through the Department of Environment, is presently working with Governmental and Non-Governmental Entities on an Education and Awareness campaign to raise awareness of the Framework document.
