GUYANA: Agri-Investment Forum – Letter to Editor – By Eusi Kwayana

Dear Editor: — Letter By Eusi Kwayana – Submitted on May 19, 2022

Oily, newly rich Guyana has become a center of assembly for various bodies of state and private officials who wish to justify their activities in economic projects with popular appeal of wealth creation; even though some of them will aggravate the climate crisis in a region already highly vulnerable to climatic crisis.
