star this property answer text <p>​We are aware of the findings of the report published in July 2019 by Australian Strategic Policy Institute. To the best of our knowledge, we agree that destroyed settlements have not been rebuilt. While there may have been some minimal reconstruction, it is not on the original sites. We are also aware of the Myanmar military's use of land previously occupied by the Rohingya. We support the view that conditions on the ground are not yet in place to support repatriation of refugees in Rakhine. We are clear that safe and sustainable returns will not be possible until conditions in Rakhine are significantly improved. It is essential that the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) is given unfettered access to assess conditions.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>​The South Georgia and the South Sandwich Islands sustainable-use Marine Protected Area (MPA) underwent its first 5-yearly review during 2018. The MPA review panel published its report on 7 November, concluding that the current MPA is achieving its objectives, whilst also making a series of recommendations to further strengthen protection of the Territory's waters. The Commissioner for South Georgia &amp; the South Sandwich Islands announced, on 12 December, a suite of environmental enhancements to the MPA. These include extending the MPA across the entire maritime area; protecting 23 per cent of the MPA to all commercial fishing activities; and prohibiting mining, hydrocarbon extraction and carriage of heavy fuel oil. The majority of these measures have put in place; the remaining measures are in the process of being implemented by the Government of South Georgia and the South Sandwich Islands.</p> more like this
