Britain backs Guyana's rainforest plan

Britain is backing an offer by the President of Guyana to preserve the country's entire 50 million acres of rainforest in return for sustainable development funds.

"The UK Government sees this as a significant and welcome step. While we respect countries' sovereignty, the offer from President Jagdeo is a groundbreaker and we will be looking at it at official level to see what part Britain can play," Mr Woolas said.

Nice to see the UK agreeing to the plan to take full control of Guyana's rainforest.

I've heard a few problems remain, the UK want to be sure the sovereignty of Guyana is not effected by our control. Opposition parties and pressure groups support the move, so hopefully something good can come about this.
