Notes signed for protected areas grant

The local protected areas system received a boost yesterday with the exchange of notes to  initiate a grant from the German Government to the Guyana Government via the Ministry of Natural Resources, the Government Information Agency reported.

German Ambassador Stefan Schluter said, according to GINA, that his country’s partnering with Guyana on environmental issues began in 1996, and since then, has continued to grow. “We are actually now celebrating the third phase of this on-going project which so far amounts to US$14 -15M. This is the latest phase which will have about 5M Euros in aid. ”
