XIX. PROMOTING ENVIRONMENTAL SUSTAINABILITY
68.Another major component of the LCDS regards the further protection of Guyanese people and productive land from changing weatherpatterns. The LCDS proposes urgent, near-term investments in the highest priority areas where the population and economic activity are concentrated. These investments include:
• Upgrading infrastructure and assets to protect against flooding through urgent, near-term measures.
• Addressing systematic and behavioral concerns. These initiatives include strengthening building codes, expanding the early warning system and building an emergency response system.
• Developing financial and risk/insurance measures to boost resiliency post flooding.
• Switching to flood resistant crops.
• Addressing the climate change adaptation needs of Guyana’s hinterland regions, including forest communities.
