GEORGETOWN -The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) is pleased to release the final report for the Democracy, Human Rights and Governance Assessment for Guyana. The assessment, conducted with the full knowledge of the government, examined political change and democratization in Guyana, analyzed core democracy and governance issues, actors, and institutions in the country and developed strategic and programmatic recommendations to address the further development of democracy and governance.
During the conduct of the assessment, the team met with representatives within the three branches of government—the executive, the legislature and the judiciary. Interviews were also conducted with a broad array of Guyanese leaders and experts, sub-national and local level representatives and members of civil society to gain their perspectives on democracy and governance in Guyana and devise concrete recommendations. Interviews were conducted in late 2015.
Tetra Tech ARD, a consulting firm based in Burlington, Vermont, U.S.A., was contracted by USAID to complete this assessment. To review the report please visit the following link:
