star this property answer text <p> </p><p>Joint UK and South Atlantic Overseas Territories funding has supported a co-ordinating post based in the Falkland Islands since 2008 to, among other things, help meet obligations arising from the Agreement on the Conservation of Albatrosses and Petrels (ACAP), a daughter agreement to the Convention on Migratory Species. ACAP has been extended to the UK's South Atlantic Territories. Defra currently contributes £20,000 per year.</p><p>ACAP seeks to conserve albatrosses and petrels by co-ordinating international activity to mitigate known threats. Collectively, the UK's South Atlantic Overseas Territories are breeding range states for 12 of the 30 species currently listed by the Agreement. The ACAP co-ordination project was established to ensure coherence of action between the Territories, assist with the planning and implementation of albatross and petrel conservation work, take responsibility for the reporting requirements and lead on critical seabird by-catch mitigation work in international fisheries fora.</p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p> </p><p>The Overseas Territories are highly dependent on the assets provided by their natural environment – their terrestrial and marine ecosystems – for their economic wellbeing. The long-term management of these assets is essential for the development of sustainable (‘green') economies in the Territories.</p><p>The objective of the environmental mainstreaming initiative is to assist individual Territories to identify the key issues that need to be addressed to ensure the environment is properly taken into account in all aspects of economic and infrastructure planning. Key issues include proper provision for waste management and the need to better understand the value of the environment to local economies and communities.</p><p>To date, three environmental mainstreaming projects have been managed by the Joint Nature Conservation Committee on behalf of the FCO and Defra, in the Falkland Islands, British Virgin Islands and Anguilla.</p><p>In addition, we have also funded projects in Anguilla through our Darwin Initiative Challenge Fund in 2012 and they are now developing a National Ecosystem Assessment using Darwin Plus funding. The purpose of this is to move towards a green economy by strengthening environmental management and sustainable growth, raising awareness of the value of ecosystems to the economy and providing evidence-based implementation of green policies.</p><p> </p>

Comparing the damage today to the 2007 floods, and following contact with the Commission, the Government's assessment was that we had not met these conditions. The Regulation governing the EUSF sets the deadline for applications as ten weeks after the first damage caused by the disaster.</p><p> </p> more like this
