Guyana: Ali pledges US$10m in solar panels for indigenous communities

President Irfaan Ali on Tuesday announced that US$10m will be allocated for solar panels in Indigenous communities and he also pledged that land demarcation  and titling will be focused on given their importance to the people.

In his address to launch the month-long Amerindian Heritage observances, Ali said that his government continues to work in a holistic manner to ensure that the policies and programmes created to address the pandemic will bring relief at the community and household levels and “more importantly, that it will see us riding out this difficult period in our history together, united and at the end of it, we must all be strong.”

“Whether you live in the mighty Pakaraimas, the sprawling Savannahs of the Rupununi, in the Upper Mazaruni, the Cuyuni, the North West District, in the rainforest or along our rivers, you are the ones who first inherited this land and who have treasured and protected it for generations. I want to assure you that your Government will never underestimate the value of this heritage, neither will we ever take you for granted,” Ali said.
