Press Release – Our Extractive Sectors Require Collective and Inclusive Governance

Release Date: September 1, 2019

The press release from Policy Forum Guyana (PFG) discusses the need for collective and inclusive governance in Guyana’s extractive sectors. It highlights the country’s recent candidacy for the Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative (EITI) and criticizes the media’s fixation on oil and gas to the detriment of other important governance achievements. The PFG expresses concern over the mismanagement of natural resource governance, particularly the REDD+ programme under the Guyana-Norway Agreement, and calls for an overhaul of governance machinery to ensure democratic and transparent administration of funds, including those from oil and gas revenues. The release emphasizes the importance of consensus and collaborative efforts in achieving effective governance.
