The NAP Global Network has been working with the Ministry of the Presidency of Guyana, and the Japan-Caribbean Climate Change Partnership of UN Development since 2016 to ensure the effectiveness of the country’s NAP processes.
We boosted public awareness on climate change adaptation processes through training programs for media and government staff. Our efforts now focus on strengthening NAP awareness by developing targeted communication products. Additionally, we are supporting the government in developing an effective monitoring and evaluation framework and increasing the capacities of staff from key ministries—on local and regional levels—to increase plan and finance adaptation activities under the NAP.
