Release Date: March 24, 2021

The document criticizes the political control of long-term investment decisions in Guyana, highlighting a disconnect between high-level financial narratives and the daily struggles of citizens, such as flooding and power outages. It questions the focus on foreign investment over local, particularly in the extractive sector, and calls for a more integrated approach to address interconnected challenges like climate change, sea-level rise, and energy decisions. The document urges for decision-making based on a common vision, transparency, and inclusivity, leveraging existing scientific and technical information to guide infrastructure and settlement planning in the face of environmental challenges.
