This working paper presents a policy review method that has been developed to assess the level of integration of both traditional knowledge and Indigenous peoples rights in Guyana’s policy and acts.

The report provides a baseline of how well traditional knowledge and Indigenous peoples rights are integrated and will serve as a comparison for annual policy reviews over the next four years, and thus enable the Darwin project to measure if the level of traditional knowledge integration is improving.
