Georgetown, 8-12 July -  In cooperation with WWF Guianas and IUCN-NL, the NCEA gave an introduction training on Strategic Environmental Assessment.  The training is part of the Shared Resources Joint Solutions Programme. The participants, consisting of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and representatives of sector ministries and CSOs had lively discussions and enthusiastically participated in cases.  During the last 2 days we focused on applying SEA in the sector for Artisanal Small-scale Gold Mining, a booming business since Guyana's economic growth in recent years has come from a surge in gold production.
