UK Government announces funding of counter-piracy projects

Foreign Office Minister Henry Bellingham has announced funding plans demonstrating the Government's determination to deliver action in response to the threat from piracy.

In a written statement to Parliament he said:

"I would like to inform the House that the Government has decided to fund a package of counter-piracy projects, building on support provided in 2010/11. This support provides concrete evidence of this Government’s determination to deliver a comprehensive range of action in response to the threat from piracy, complementing the robust action being taken by the Royal Navy at sea.

The projects support court and prison capacity building in Mauritius, the Seychelles, Tanzania and Somalia delivered through the UN Office on Drugs and Crime (£2.25m); a maritime security sector needs assessment planning mission in Somalia, delivered through the UN Development Programme (£200,000); maritime security co-ordination offices in Somalia, delivered through the UN Political Office for Somalia, and including the Somali regions (£120,000); and projects supporting community engagement and economic development in coastal areas of Somalia, developed with UN partners in Somalia, including UNODC and UNDP (£2M)."
