The Government of Guyana (GOG) has received funding from the Guyana REDD+ Investment Fund (GRIF) for the project “Institutional Strengthening in Support of Guyana’s Low Carbon Development Strategy and intends to apply part of the proceeds for consulting services.” The project aims to assist in enhancing national institutional capacity in Guyana to address the impacts of Climate Change, ensure the effective implementation of the Low Carbon Development Strategy (LCDS), and help Guyana meet its commitments under interim Reducing Emissions from Deforestation, forest Degradation and Sustainable forest Management (REDD+) partnerships. These funds for the aforementioned project are being channeled through the Inter-American Development Bank (the “Bank”) which acts as a Partner Entity to the project.
The consulting services (“the Services”) is expected to produce a NEW FINALISED OPT-IN MECHANISM, inclusive of the methodological framework, technical notes, the institutional arrangements, and administrative and operational procedures. This is essentially a full toolkit of tested information, procedures and documents that the government and communities require to implement a system of payments for avoided emissions from deforestation. The village of Muritaro has been identified by the National Toshaos Council to be used as a case study pilot for the village component of the Opt-In system.
