Source:, 2018-06-28

ôTransformational changeö will be needed if humanity is to avoid environmental ôcatastropheö, President David Granger of Guyana today told the closing session of the Global Environment Facility's (GEF) Assembly in Da Nang, Viet Nam. But he added that the meeting had convinced him that a ônew day is dawning for the global environmentö.

President Granger was the third head of government to address the GEF's Sixth Assembly, attended by 1,200 people, including ministers and other representatives from all the GEF's 183 member countries. President Hilda Heine of the Marshall Islands and Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc, Prime Minister of Viet Nam, spoke at the opening session yesterday, along with heads of UN agencies and top businessmen, bankers and scientists.
