Such bureaucratic delays prevented Annai and other nearby communities from getting credit for several small enterprise projects they've already undertaken, says Mike Williams, vice chair of the North Rupununi District Development Board (NRDDB), a nonprofit that represents 20 Indigenous communities.
The nrddb objects to this plan because the proposed land lies adjacent to their titled villages and in the headwaters of the Rupununi River, an area that floods during the wet season.
Williams of NRDDB says that Indigenous people near the villages of Apoteri and Rewa in his region were affected by the Chinese logging concessions, which were contiguous with their titled land.
