The Office of Climate Change is the governmental agency responsible for leading the development and implementation of national policies and actions for ‘climate change mainstreaming’ and the coordination of efforts to mitigate and adapt to climate change. Originally conceived primarily to support the preparation and implementation of the Low Carbon Development Strategy in 2009 the Office is expanding its role to lead Guyana´s national climate change efforts.

The OCC is the National Focal Point for climate change and to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) and therefore has a core responsibility to co-ordinate Guyana’s international engagements with the UNFCCC and other climate change processes.
