Guyana - University of Guyana (UG) Science and Technology Support Project : additional financing (English)

The objective of the University of Guyana (UG) Science and Technology Support Project is to strengthen the four science and technology faculties at the University of Guyana through infrastructure, research and curricular improvements while building the basis for improved facilities management and future growth. The additional financing (AF) was requested by the Borrower on June 29, 2015 in order to cover a financing gap due to the depreciation of the SDR versus the US Dollar and cost increases related to inflation and design modifications. There are no new activities and no changes proposed to current components or objective of the project. The additional funds would enable continuation of the improvements in UG infrastructure, in particular, the procurement of laboratory equipment and furniture, as well as a campus-wide drainage improvement, which will enhance the facilities for the science and technology faculties and improve the learning environment. In addition, a minor change to the results framework is proposed. An intermediate indicator on beneficiary feedback has been added to the results framework. The outcome indicators and other current Intermediate Outcome Indicators will remain unchanged.
