Winrock International


With more than 80 percent of its land covered by forests, Guyana has the potential to play a critical role in mitigating climate change. Winrock has been a close partner with the Guyana Forestry Commission as it has developed and implemented Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation (REDD) strategies. Our work has involved assisting in everything from the design of a field-based carbon monitoring system to the development of a long-term forest carbon monitoring plan to estimating past forest emissions.
