Guyana is highly vulnerable to sea level rise and increased flooding due to climate change and a lack of development and maintenance across its drainage system. For these reasons, planning and engaging with development partners on the rehabilitation of the East Demerara Water Conservancy (EDWC) dam was an essential step in strengthening flood risk management in Guyana. To continue the rehabilitative work on the EDWC, the World Bank provided additional financing of twenty-six million US dollars to the ongoing Guyana Flood Risk Management (FRM) Project. This financing, combined with technical capacity support from the Canada-Caribbean Resilience Facility (CRF), has helped the government of Guyana improve its climate resilience, protect economic activity, and reduce the impact of natural disasters.
