The extent of people’s education and health, the intensity and commitment of their aspirations and energy, the quality of their attitudes and values, skills and information are crucial determinants of the process.
Collectively, the contribution of the UNCT to national efforts, along with those of other development partners, is expected to bring about the changes in the situation of the people of Guyana that are described in the UNDAF outcome statements. The priority areas identified for development cooperation between the GoG and the UNCT in Guyana are structured into the following four outcomes:
- National policies, strategies, and plans for disaster risk reduction (DRR), management of natural resources, and access to clean energy and services developed, implemented, monitored, and evaluated.
- Improved economic and social policies and programmes to enable the creation of a climate-resilient economy in the context of the Low Carbon Development Strategy.
- Strengthened public participation, trust, and confidence in national governance institutions, including the five Rights Commissions, the Parliament, and GECOM.
- National development plans, policies, programmes, and legislation (where required) formulated, implemented, monitored, and evaluated to achieve the MDGs, with special attention to key populations at higher risk and the progressive realisation of human rights.
