An article in the May 16, 2019 Bloomberg Businessweek features Winrock’s work in Guyana. “How to Make Money Off Rainforests Without Cutting Them Down” describes Norway’s deal to pay Guyana $250 million to curb its deforestation.
“The money paid for, among other things, scientists from Winrock International to assist the Guyana Forestry Commission in developing a system for measuring the quantity of carbon stored by the country’s forest,” the article says.
Winrock has been working in Guyana for more than a decade, helping the nation preserve its trees by developing a satellite-detection-based approach to rapidly identify disturbances to forest cover.
