HC Deb 16 June 1992 vol 209 c452W
Mr. Dafis

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs how much is currently allocated by the Overseas Development Administration to assist community environmental action.

Mr. Lennox-Boyd

The Overseas Development Administration does not collate data in the format requested. However, some examples of support for community environmental action are the 124 projects at a cost of about £13 million we fund with non-governmental organisations, and the western Ghats forestry project in southern India, to which we are contributing £25 million, which includes programmes for involving local community groups in the planning and management of the forest.
