PROJECT DESCRIPTION: The Conservancy Adaptation Project aims at strengthening the government’s and donor understanding of the East Demerara Water Conservancy (EDWC) system and coastal drainage patterns through the integration of advanced mapping and engineering analysis. The project also aims at implementing infrastructure investments to improve drainage performance, to strengthen the institutional capacity for managing water and floodwater levels, and to guide interventions to reduce Guyana’s vulnerability to floods.
