France: A French delegation expressed an interest in surveying Guyana’s forest using satellite technology, Stabroek News reports. In an interview with the Government Information Agency (GINA), Prefect of La Guyane Daniel Ferey said his delegation is hopeful about a collaboration. He said it will make use of “technology from French Guiana because it is space centre and we are proposing to the Government of Guyana to collaborate with us for that project.”
Ferey also noted that his country, along with the rest of the world is impressed with the president’s Low Carbon Development Strategy (LCDS) and preserving natural resources. He noted that Jagdeo’s advocacy and leadership can be useful in French Guiana’s quest for forest preservation. “We hope with the leadership of President Jagdeo opting in to this technology, we will be able to bring results to Suriname and Brazil to have a survey by satellite as what we have in French Guiana,” he said.
