By BBN Staff: The government of Belize and the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) yesterday launched a project to support Belize’s Public Awareness and Preparedness Campaign on the question of referring Guatemala’s territorial claim to the International Court of Justice (ICJ).
The grant worth US $250,000 is funded through the US government’s Central America Regional Security Initiative (CARSI) Economic Support Fund.
The initiative fundamentally impacts all three of the US’ strategic goals in Belize and the larger Central American region.
Those strategic goals are citizen security, democratic governance, and economic prosperity.
On April 10, 2019, Belizeans will decide whether or not they want to take Guatemala’s long standing claim on Belize’s continental, insular and maritime territory to the ICJ.
The decision made at the ICJ is final and cannot be appealed.
