Caribbean Week of Agriculture 2013 – Guyana’s Enmore Estate & Tour along East Demerara Conservancy
Mangrove Restoration Project is funded by a partnership between the Government of Guyana and the European Union. The project is implemented by the Ministry of Agriculture through the National Agriculture Research & Extension Institute (NAREI).
The National Mangrove Management Action Plan covers a three-year period from 2010 to 2012.Alternative funding will be sought to continue the plan when the EU funds expires.
The overall objective is to respond to climate change and to mitigate its effects through the protection, rehabilitation and wise use of Guyana’s mangrove ecosystems through processes that maintain their protective function, values and biodiversity while meeting the socio-economic development and environmental protection needs in estuarine and coastal areas. The operational duration of the project is 48 months from the signature of the Financing Agreement (n0 9732/GUA) in mid 2010.
