British Prime Minister David Cameron has announced a 5.6 million pounds injection to help improve fishing, tourism and shipping in the Caribbean and other countries.
The 25 “small island” Commonwealth recipients include Bermuda, Jamaica, the Maldives, the Seychelles (say-SHELL), St. Lucia, and Trinidad and Tobago.
Cameron, who attended the Commonwealth Heads of Government meeting in Malta, said he wants the countries to be able to make the most of their natural maritime resources.
He made the announcement while unveiling a 26 million pounds aid package to help tackle global warming ahead of a meeting of world leaders in Paris today.
The cash will be used to manage fisheries, protect coastlines and tackle pollution, as well as extending disaster risk.
