Context:The Government of Guyana’s Green State Development Strategy (GSDS) Vision 2040 aims to align climate and environmental-resilient and Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) 2030 Agenda. These policy measures have arisen in response to global threats of climate change and Guyana’s economic inefficiencies. Therefore, the country’s response is to move to a fully sustainable and resilient economy that works to preserve natural resources in an inclusive manner to support decarbonisation, resource-efficient, and environmentally sustainable development.
Against this background, a one-day sensitization workshop on “Green State Development Strategy and the ILO Just and Fair Transition Guidelines to Green Economy” was conducted in Georgetown Guyana, on 18 May 2018 for instructors of the TVET Council, managers and deputy managers of TVET institutions, and officials from the Ministry of Education. As a follow-up to the previous workshop, the ILO will be conducting a second training workshop for national stakeholders in Guyana on Skills Anticipation and Matching, with emphasis on Green Jobs/Skills for the ILO Caribbean Resilience Project.
