Status Update

An international individual consultant and a local individual consultant were recruited by the Food and Agriculture Organisation of the United Nations (UNFAO) to conduct the necessary baseline studies and develop the project document, which is currently at an advanced stage.

On March 2nd 2017 the Guyana Lands and Surveys Commission in partnership with the UNFAO conducted a sensitisation and validation workshop for the project concept with key stakeholders and are using the feedback to finalise the project document.

The project document is expected to be posted to the website in May 2017 for the public review and comment period.
