In 2022, the UN in Guyana operated in a national policy context that sought to balance the various opportunities and risks presented by natural resource wealth. Guyana’s long-term SDG investments in education, health, and infrastructure, combined with its responses to cost-of living and food security challenges (in coordination with its CARICOM partners) were all sources of great encouragement.
Guyana’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) progress last year was spurred by programs and policies bolstered by an ‘SDG enabling’ budgetary framework.
In Guyana’s rapid growth context, a shared pledge to ‘Leave No One Behind’ took on additional significance. Through 2022 great steps were taken to further include and promote the role of young people, persons with disabilities, women, and children.
