Press Release – GGMC is Institutionally Unfit for Environmental Protection

Release Date: August 3, 2019

This press release from Policy Forum Guyana (PFG) criticizing the Guyana Geology & Mines Commission (GGMC) for its inadequate land restoration efforts and lack of transparency. PFG highlights the superficial approach to restoration by GGMC and calls for a fundamental restructuring of land restoration practices. It suggests reducing GGMC’s role and advocates for a new agency focused on eco-system rehabilitation. The release also discusses the financial implications of environmental bonds, the impact of mining on forest degradation, and the need for rigorous regulation and realistic economic costs for restoration to address the global climate crisis.
