[] – President David Granger is not prepared to dismiss efforts by Opposition Leader Bharrat Jagdeo to advance Guyana’s climate change objectives on the international scene.

In fact, Mr Granger at a press conference on Friday, October 2, stated that he welcomes the efforts being made by the Leader of the Opposition.

In the last week, Jagdeo joined world leaders in New York, as the international community gathered to accelerate preparations towards reaching a historic global climate agreement in Paris in December.

At the United Nations, the Opposition Leader emphasised how people from developing countries around the world continued to be united in their desire to provide solutions to climate change.

When asked about the moves being made by Jagdeo, President Granger lightly stated that the Former President has “seen the light.”

“We welcome comrade Jagdeo’s support for our agenda….we are not in the business of rejecting any assistance from the former President… as far as Mr Jagdeo is concerned his intervention is welcomed,” said Mr Granger.

The President acknowledged that Jagdeo, during his tenure in office, would have overseen the implementation of the Low Carbon Development Strategy (LCDS).

Under this initiative, developing countries are paid by developed countries to preserve its forests.

Guyana is currently earning billions annually from the initiative.



  1. Emilie Mervin even Granger acknowledges Dr. Jagdeo efforts and contributions hower it’s hate mongers like you that continues to derail progress in our country. It’s sad that “Love & Unity” was written all over Guyana by APNU+AFC=PNC during the election campaign hower it’s supporters like you who can’t seem to move on from race hate.

    You have now challenge Granger since he has no choice but to acknowledge Dr.Jadgeo contribution in this regard.

  2. If we receiving billions then buy some SAMs and some f16 let Courtney Benn build some gun boats then we will see if Suriname or Venezuela want problems

  3. I challenge Granger to show the nation the benefits of Jagdeo’s Low Carbon Development Strategy.

    Guyana is receiving money to save its forests, but the same forests are being depleted by the Chinese and Indian companies? No wonder Venezuela and Suriname ‘eyes pass Guyana’!
