In Dubai, Guyana hopes to show the world its forest-saving plans (video)

Guyana has big goals for its climate strategy, known as the low-carbon development strategy, and it's here in COP28 to talk to the world.

Thousands of persons have travelled to Dubai, an emirate of the United Arab Emirates (UAE), for this year’s global climate talks, COP28. Delegates from Guyana including the country’s President Dr. Irfaan Ali, Vice President Dr. Bharrat Jagdeo and Indigenous leaders have also travelled to Dubai in hopes of showing the world how Guyana has been protecting its forests, how its Indigenous people are using it and how it intends to earn more from keeping those forests intact.

Guyana also hopes to influence the conversation on climate change by explaining that emitters, like players in the oil and gas sector, cannot be locked out of the climate talks.
