Guyana Democratic Consolidation and Conflict Resolution Program
From 2004 to 2008, Democracy International implemented a program supporting election reform and administration in Guyana. DI advised the election commission on continuous voter registration, database design, biometrics, and the design of a new electoral system. DI advised both major parties on issues of electoral administration, voter registration, and pollwatching, and worked to promote inter-ethnic cooperation and conflict resolution at the national, regional, and community levels and across multiple sectors. DI also designed baseline survey research for USAID’s democracy and governance programming focusing on electoral issues.
