  • Government in Action … Education and Sustainable Development

    Guyana's push toward sustainable development can be achieved through initiatives in conservation, technology and policy-making, but it is investment in human capital through the provision of quality education, which will help to condition the minds of future generations and lead to transformative development for the country. Education sits at the very heart of an inter-connected plan toward the transformation of Guyana. Moreover, quality education is among the United Nations’ Development Programme’s Sustainable Development Goals, which serves as a global call to action to “end poverty, protect the planet and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity.”
