UNMSDF Priority 4The priority area A Sustainable and Resilient Guyana is a call for the UN to support Guyana in addressing the effects of climate change on livelihoods, especially those who are most vulnerable. It focuses on UN System support to strengthening institutional and community resilience in the Caribbean in terms of natural resources management, the protection and sustainable use of terrestrial, coastal and marine ecosystems, renewable energy systems, and inclusive and sustainable societies. Finally, it demands an integrated approach to the sustainable use and management of natural resources.

Final outcomes for the United Nations Multi-Country Sustainable Development Framework

1. Policies and programmes for climate change adaption, disaster risk reduction and universal access to clean and sustainable energy in place.

 2. Inclusive and sustainable solutions adopted for the conservation, the restoration and the use of ecosystems and natural resources.

UNMSDF Priority 3The priority area A Safe, Cohesive and Just Guyana acknowledges that insufficient citizen security restricts the people of Guyana to live full and productive lives. This has an impact especially on women, youth, children and other vulnerable groups. It acknowledges conditions that will promote security and rule of law as well as addresses the root causes that perpetuate violence, including attitudes, vulnerabilities and lack of access to justice. Within this priority, the UN will support member States to adhere to international, regional and national commitments to ensure that all persons can live free from harm within the public and private spheres.

Final outcomes for the United Nations Multi-Country Sustainable Development Framework

1. Equitable access to justice, protection, citizen security and safety reinforced.

2. Capacities of public policy and rule of law institutions and civil society organizations strengthened.

UNMSDF Priority 2The priority area A Healthy Guyana responds to the concern that health and nutrition are increasingly affecting the lives of the people in Guyana. It acknowledges that to improve health, a multisectoral approach building on a ‘health for all’ policies approach is needed. It means addressing environmental factors such as access to safe water and food safety. This implies strengthening the ability of the state to provide universal access to quality services and healthy nutrition as well as to the knowledge needed for prevention of disease, including Non-Communicable Diseases (NCDs). It demands action on Sexual and Reproductive Health (SRH) and HIV/AIDS and related stigma and discrimination and to promote sustainable agricultural production for improved health outcomes. Finally, it acknowledges that a human rights approach is necessary for equity.

Final outcomes for the United Nations Multi-Country Sustainable Development Framework

1. Universal Access to quality health care services and systems improved.

2. Laws, policies and systems introduced to support healthy lifestyles among all segments of the population.
