During Minister Trevelyan's visit to Guyana 🇬🇾 as the UK's International Champion for Adaptation and Resilience they took a trip along the Mahaica river. 🚣‍♀️

The trip provided a fantastic ability to see some of the beauty of Guyana as well as its unique wildlife.

It is this biodiversity that we must protect from the impact of global warming. There are few solutions in tackling #climatechange that do not put #Nature and #Adaptation at the very heart of our response.

Acting British High Commissioner bids farewell to Guyana at the end of six month assignment.

The Acting British High Commissioner, Ross Denny, departs for the UK on Monday 5th July at the end of his six month assignment as UK envoy to Guyana, and concurrent Chargé d’affaires to Suriname. Denny, who served as the UK’s Ambassador to Costa Rica and Nicaragua until late last year, was asked to cover theperiod between Greg Quinn’s departure, and the appointment and arrival of the new substantive High Commissioner, Jane Miller who arrives in Georgetown shortly. The FCDO envisaged a gap of six months and given the importance of the UK-Guyana bilateral relationship, felt it important to ensure that the UK continued to be represented at a senior level during this period.Denny now returns to the UK before taking up another appointment. On his time in Guyana he said “I feel honoured to have had the opportunity to spend some time in this beautiful and fascinating country, and at an important time in its history. I’ve been made to feel very welcome wherever I went. And I was fortunate to be able to visit several places in the hinterland where the UK is funding important projects, and of course to meet a wide range of people. I was a little surprised on my arrival to find that there was no British chamber of commerce, and set the creation of one as a high priority for my time. I’m delighted that this is now a reality. The Chamber will be launched officially when Jane Miller arrives and has been accredited. It will be a bilateral chamber, as much for the benefit of Guyanese businesses interested in developing trading links with the UK as it is for British businesses looking to trade with and invest in Guyana. My hope is that the presence of an active bilateral chamber will lead to even greater commercial activity between our two countries, for the benefit of both our peoples. The bilateral relationship is in great shape, with many shared interests and values. I wish my replacement every success in taking this forward.”

Acting British High Commissioner to Guyana and Chargé d’affaires (non-resident) to Suriname Ross Denny would like to congratulate both Guyana and Suriname for signing up to the Leaders Pledge for Nature in time for World Environment Day. Acting High Commissioner Ross Denny said:

“By signing The Leaders’ Pledge for Nature both Guyana and Suriname are demonstrating their strong environmental credentials and commitment towards the more sustainable development pathways we need. Both Guyana and Suriname are home to some of the most magnificent fauna and flora in the world; with unique biodiversity seen nowhere else. The growing list of leaders who have signed the Pledge is sending a united signal to step up global ambition and encourage others to match their collective ambition for nature, climate and people with the scale of the crisis and the urgent need to adopt more sustainable development pathways. The Leaders’ Pledge for Nature is an opportunity for us to come together and take effective measures for a healthier planet: measures that deliver for biodiversity, for human development and wellbeing, and for our climate.

The UK is committed to taking bold action to tackle biodiversity loss and put nature on a path to recovery and is a founding member of The Leaders’ Pledge for Nature. We are committed to working with our fellow signatories, including Suriname and Guyana, to ensure that the Pledge commitments translate into sustained, transformative global action on the ground”.

Acting High Commissioner Denny would also like to take this opportunity to wish the people of Guyana and Suriname a Happy #WorldEnvironmentDay.

Dr.David Singh, Director WWF-Guianas also congratulated both countries. Dr. Singh said:

“While Suriname and Guyana face tough choices for their economic recovery, the pledge for Nature is an important signal that the countries are maintaining their commitment towards a just, inclusive, and sustainable future. We are mindful that both countries have embraced offshore oil and gas development at a time when the global community has finally united to transition away from fossil fuels. But the endorsement of the Leaders Pledge for Nature is one step towards signalling to the global community that it has not given up on its green credentials. The Guianas can still be a Beacon of Hope for the World in this time of planetary emergency."

Background on the Leaders’ Pledge for Nature

The Leaders’ Pledge provides a holistic roadmap for the next 10 years to address the planetary emergency in an integrated way, recognising the mutually reinforcing climate and biodiversity crises, the links with One Health and the vital importance of such action to build back better and greener.

An ex -american soldier pulled a gun on me. British high commission should investigate this.
Good afternoon I’m currently in Georgetown how can I get a meeting with someone from the consulate to discuss my company’s business plan for Guyana ? Regards Wayne Turner C.O.O
Hello what systems do you have in place for receiving human rights violation complaints against the Guyana government and state agencies? I have a few matters i would like to report to the relevant officer in the high commission thanks in advance
hello do you have a desk or a mechanism for accepting reports on human rights violations in Guyana? thanks in advance
Can you tell us why you are waiting until november to resume visa application service? This seems quite unfair to Guyanese nurses working here in the Uk, providing an exceptional service while missing their families who are stuck in Guyana. This is silly, and needs to be looked into!
Thank you Mr.Quinn for standing with Guyana in the fight for Democracy...U will always be remember n thank u sir once again for all ur contribution towards Guyana.Have a safe journey back home..✈
I would like to know the views of the British High commission on what transpired last night at Christopher Jones MP home. Brett Quinn has stated in the past 18 day that he will hold the Ali Administration accountable for actions deemed non transparent or unlawful. Last night thousands of people watched live the the Guyana Police Force politically harass Mr Jones and his family. Not once but twice. Guyana Police Force. unlawfully disregardes a court order denying Mr Jones his basic Human Rights. As a British Guyanese you represent me and the people of the United Kingdom. I have watched your self and other international Diplomats for 5 months be very vocal regarding Guyana's elections. Threatening sanctions against the Apnu administration if they didn't conform to the ABC countries ideology. 18 days Guyana has become a lawless state! Is this the Democracy you were fight for? Are you going to condemn the political witch hurt that has been taken place since the start of Ali Administration? Is this the will of the people of Guyana? Where is your tweet? Do #blacklivesmatter in Guyana? As you and the diplomatic community were so vocal on Guyana's Election. I except the same of the condemnation of Policitalised of Guyana Police Force by The Ali Administration
Hi there, Can a Guyanese drive in UK with Guyana License?
