The Guyana Forestry Commission (GFC) will soon be able to access funds from the Guyana REDD+ Investment Fund (GRIF), moving closer to restoring the commission to its rightful place.
Minister of Natural Resources, Hon. Raphael Trotman told a press conference today, that while the commission has been experiencing some financial difficulties, the government, through his ministry, is working to return it to full viability, making “it even better than before.”
Included in the efforts are the use of funds from the Guyana/Norway Agreement and the sale of the High Street, Georgetown building.
“Cabinet has given its “in principle” support, and I have written to Minister of State, her ministry is the one under which the Office of Climate Change and project management office come… asking for us to start the process of actualising that cabinet decision which came at the beginning of this year,” the minister told the media.
