|On July 10, 2007, the Ministry of Agriculture on behalf of the Government of Guyana and the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) signed an agreement for the climate change enabling activity project called “Enabling Activity for the Preparation of Guyana’s Second National Communication (SNC) to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC)”. Guyana is a non-annex I and II party to the UNFCCC and is required to submit national communications on steps being taken to implement the convention. To date, Guyana has submitted its Initial National Communication (INC) in 2002 and is among many developing countries that have received funding from the Global Environmental Facility (GEF) to prepare their SNC. |
According to Article 4, paragraphs 3, 5 and 7 of the Convention, it is recognized that the extent to which developing parties will effectively implement their commitment to communicate information will depend on the implementation by developed country parties of their commitments under the Convention relating to financial resources and the transfer of technology. As a result, it is necessary to identify the gaps and constraints and the related financial, technical and capacity needs of Guyana.
