This document reports on the Conservancy Adaptation Project (CAP) implemented in Guyana for adaptation to the flood threats posed by future climate change. The report presents ways of reducing the likelihood of catastrophic flooding along Guyana’s low-lying coastal areas, also threatened by sea level rise. The developed program of strategic interventions and policies aimed at addressing recurrent flooding and the ananticipated impacts from sea level rise included: (i) LiDAR (Light Detection And Ranging) laser mapping aerial surveys and high resolution on aerial photography, and (ii) ground based bathymetric surveys.
