first_imgHead of the Department of the Environment (DoE), Ndibi Schwiers on Monday at her Department’s annual sector review, announced that a US$2.4 million “Strengthening Technical Capacities to mainstream and monitor the RIO Convention through policy coordination” project 2016-2020, is being undertaken in collaboration with the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP).To this end, several workshops and awareness sessions have been successfully conducted resulting in the participation of more than 400 persons from Government agencies and the Private Sector.Minister of State, Joseph HarmonThe GSDS will be the country’s third national development strategy and is intended to guide national development in all sectors. The DoE, Schwiers noted, is working with UN Environment, which is Guyana’s partner in developing the strategy.Providing an update on the progress of the GSDS’ development, the Department Head noted that several rounds of consultations have been hosted across the country, and the Department has been successful in starting what have been dubbed “green conversations”, which are intended to fill the awareness gap.The Coordination Desk of the DoE is working along with the Communities and Indigenous Peoples’ Affairs Ministries to create a consultation plan. The next steps, according to Schwiers, will be research and drafting of the document.To do this, the Department has developed seven thematic groups which coincide with the seven thematic areas of the GSDS. The University of Guyana is also playing an instrumental role in this process as its representatives are tasked with identifying seven thematic experts, who will assist the thematic groups in drafting various thematic elements of the GSDS.Head of the Department of the Environment, Ndibi SchwiersSchwiers informed that a meeting of the Advisory Group of the GSDS, which consists of the Chairs and Co-chairs of the seven thematic areas, is scheduled for January 25, 2018, to facilitate further discussions.The DoE will also be focusing this year on an in-depth programme review of the Environment Protection Agency (EPA), harmonising environmental management countrywide and development of its strategic plan.The job of the Department, Schwiers assured, is not to usurp the functions of the four agencies under its purview, which are the National Parks Commission, the Protected Areas Commission, the EPA and the Guyana Wildlife Conservation and Management Commission, but to support them.In this vein, Minister of State, Joseph Harmon urged Heads of the respective agencies to focus on their objectives for 2018 and how they could adequately execute them placing greater emphasis on inter-agency support and collaboration.They were urged to examine those “factors that impact on the work we have to do as a sector… I believe we are more in the regulatory framework than any other department because whatever happens in the environment if something goes wrong, we are the ones that people will look to,” the Minister is quoted as saying.Responding to the challenges faced by the various agencies, Minister Harmon assured that in those areas that require it, an immediate intervention would be made.Minister Harmon urged them to bring matters to his attention as they arise to ensure timely resolution which would allow for the efficient functioning of all the entities.last_img read more

We want it to be a safe and happy weekend but that can only happen if people are sensible about what they do.“No-one should take any risks whatsoever. Using our waters can be fun, but it can also be very dangerous.

first_img “She said, ‘great.’ Then I told her I was coming with three other nurses. She said, ‘great,’ again.” For the next five days, the women worked 14- to 16-hour shifts at the medical complex set up at the Astrodome, then crashed at Kelly’s sister’s home for a few hours’ sleep. They didn’t wait for clearance through official channels to get started because there were no real official channels, only chaos. “One guy said we should sign up to help and he’d call us when they needed us,” Kelly said. “We hadn’t come all this way to wait for some bureaucrat to call when they needed us.” Kelly thanked the guy, turned to her friends and said, “Let’s go find the sick people.” And that’s what they did. Holly and Melanie began taking care of the kids coming into the pediatric clinic inside the Astrodome, while Kelly and Teresa worked with some of the nurses from Texas Children’s Hospital in a tent set up outside. “We branched out into our strengths, taking care of trauma patients, helping lost children locate their parents and getting the more seriously injured and sick to hospitals,” Melanie said. “Kelly was running around like Radar O’Reilly on ‘M*A*S*H,’ getting things taken care of and making sure things were running smoothly. There was no brass around.” Which was good because they probably couldn’t have done all they did to help those families if FEMA and local officials had arrived on scene as quickly as the emergency-room nurses from California. “By the time we were leaving, the red tape was starting to come in to take control,” Melanie says. “It was like watching a librarian with all the books who didn’t want you to read any.” When you’re a nurse at one of the busiest trauma center/emergency rooms in Los Angeles County – more than 48,000 emergency cases last year – you don’t wait around. “They needed more doers, and that’s what we were,” Kelly says. Leaving Houston and coming home was tough, they say. Even experienced emergency-room nurses can’t see that much heartbreak and misery without taking it home with them. It just didn’t seem right to be back in their comfortable homes, sitting around the dinner table with their families when there were still so many people in Houston who had lost everything. “We did the best we could,” Holly says. “We saw the need, filled it, and moved on. It’s something we do every day here.” The phone call from Houston came a few days after they got home. It was from someone in the rescue operations office at the Astrodome. “OK, we can use you now,” he said. The emergency-room nurses at Providence Holy Cross Medical Center just laughed.

You’re all set! There was no way they were staying home, the women say. No way they were just going to sit in front of the TV and watch all the misery that Hurricane Katrina was causing and not do something about it. They were emergency-room nurses, and this was an emergency – an epic emergency. Every fiber in their bodies told them they had to fly to Houston, where people were being evacuated from New Orleans to the Astrodome a few days after Katrina hit. Holly Nagatoshi picked up a phone and called Melanie Ridgley. “So when are we leaving?” she asked her co-worker. Her kids had soccer practice, Melanie said, but she thought her husband could cover for her.

Within a day, the four ER nurses at Providence Holy Cross Medical Center had enlisted co-workers to cover their shifts at the Mission Hills hospital, taken a week’s worth of vacation time, and were on a jet headed for Houston. They’re emergency-room nurses. That’s what they do. Kelly called her sister in Houston, and told her she was coming to visit for a week. last_img read more
