Specialists from India’s Energy and Research Institute have completed the technical studies on priority projects under Guyana’s Low-Carbon Development Strategy.

The two-month endeavour, which came in accordance with a Memorandum of Understanding between Guyana and TERI, has its origins in a visit to India earlier this year by former Guyanese President Bharrat Jagdeo and Shyam Nokta, head of the country’s Climate Change Unit.

The Memorandum involved support for Guyana in the implementation of its climate initiatives and the country’s Low-Carbon Development Strategy by TERI, which is headed by Dr RK Pachauri, a Nobel Prize laureate and chairman of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change.

The study looked at several issues, including forestry and biodiversity.

TERI’s specialists have delivered a report on their findings to Guyana President Donald Ramotar.
