LCDS to receive implementation support from Indian Research Institute

Guyana’s Low Carbon Development Strategy (LCDS) will soon benefit from implementation support through a memorandum of understanding between the government of Guyana and the Energy and Research Institute (Teri).

Former president, Bharrat Jagdeo and Shyam Nokta from the office of the president held discussions in Delhi Teri officials, which will see Guyana receiving support in the implementation of its climate initiatives and the LCDS.

Among the areas identified for assistance include support for long- term strategy development in the energy sector with focus on renewable energy and energy efficiency and establishing a partnership for the setting up of a centre for biodiversity studies.

Within the next two months, Teri will be sending a team of specialists who will be working with their Guyana counterparts on these priority areas.

Former president Jagdeo has been requested by president Donald Ramotar to attend, on behalf of the government of Guyana the Delhi sustainable development summit 2012 which is being convened by Teri in New Delhi, India from February 2 to 4, 2012.
