guyana-parliamentOutcome 3: Strengthened public participation, trust, and confidence in national governance institutions, including the five Rights Commissions, the Parliament, and GECOM.

Political inclusion of all groups - women, indigenous people, differently abled, youth and the elderly - is essential to reduce the social and economic inequalities and improve access to services in the society, especially in hinterland regions. Although circumstances differ across the 10 regions, the national authorities face the same challenge everywhere: to create an enabling governance environment that is not only aware of, and responsive to, the needs and interests of the most disadvantaged and marginalised – but that also is willing and able to provide sound, effective remedies to the concerns of these groups , examining the application of the principles of equitable access, participation, accountability, and empowerment in governance arenas, and promoting the use of a human rights-based approach to programming on inclusive governance.

three-boysOutcome 2: Improved economic and social policies and programmes to enable the creation of a climate-resilient economy in the context of the Low Carbon Development Strategy.

This outcome is based on the thematic area Inclusive Growth. Sustainable economic growth is central to effective, long-term poverty reduction strategies. Rapid and sustained poverty reduction requires proper growth – a pace and pattern of growth in which poor women and men contribute, participate and benefit.
