French Guiana is formally participating in the GSF since 29 January 2013. The focal point for the GSF in French Guiana is: Direction de l'Environnement, de l'Aménagement et du Logement (DEAL) de Guyane.
The GSF is not directly supporting a project in French Guiana. The GSF and DEAL Guyane are collaborating to set up WAVINGS – Water Views & Information Network in the Guiana Shield.
2013 is the United Nations Year of Water Cooperation (http://www.unwater.org/watercooperation2013.html).
The GSF, DEAL Guyane and Comité de Bassin du Guyane organized a workshop for the different partners involved in water resources management in the countries of the Guiana Shield from 23-25 October 2013, where the technical network «WAVINGS» was launched. The purpose of the Workshop was to enhance cooperation actions among water stakeholders in the countries of the Guiana Shield, through sharing of knowledge, experiences and views on water management.
