    …making Bartica a ‘green’ town, one project at a time

    AS Guyana forges ahead with it's Green State Development Strategy, President David Granger has envisioned Bartica (Cuyuni-Mazaruni) as the first ‘green’ town in Guyana and the Caribbean, leading in areas such as renewable energy, electric vehicles and environmental stewardship. 

     

    One of the key drivers of this vision is the Office of Climate Change (OCC), which is headed by Mrs Janelle Christian. The OCC is determined to play its part and has been quietly doing that for the past two years in the town of Bartica with funding from the Italian Government and the Japan-Caribbean Climate Change Partnership (J-CCCP).
