The Government of Guyana will receive a loan of USD $25 million from the Caribbean Development Bank to fund a Project which will protect a number of communities from flooding and other hazards brought on by the effects of climate change.

Components of the project include the reconstruction and improvement of approximately 5.4 km of sea and river defences as well as for capacity in shoreline change monitoring and analysis. The project will also include a Community Awareness and Education Programme.
