To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what help he gives to promoting the needs of biodiversity in Madagascar. 
§ Mr. Baldry
Under our joint funding scheme we are providing £402,000 in support of two World Wide Fund for Nature projects to assist the Government of Madagascar in biodiversity and protected areas management, and environmental education.
As soon as Madagascar ratifies the convention on biological diversity, it will become eligible to receive funding under the global environment facility.
