U.S. funds 3 Honduran Naval bases

first_img TEGUCIGALPA, Honduras – The United States has donated funding to enable Honduras to build three naval bases, Honduran Defense Minister Marlon Pascua said. The first base is operational in Guanaja Island, which is about 70 kilometers off the Central American nation’s Caribbean coast, while the second base is being built in Caratasca, which is near the border with Nicaragua. The third will be constructed in Puerto Castilla along the Caribbean coast. “The government of the United States helps Honduras,” said Pascua, who wouldn’t reveal the exact amount of the donation. The bases will bolster Honduras’ counter-narcotics fight, as the country is used as a transshipment point to transport drugs north toward the United States. Nearly 90% of the cocaine that reaches the United States comes through Mexico and Central America, according the United Nations International Narcotics Control Board.

Norwegian oil fund may be granted standalone energy mandate

first_imgSolberg said: “I am pleased to announce today that we will follow this up with concrete proposals for solutions when the finance minister presents the report on the Government Pension Fund Global on April 4.“This proposal is to extend the mandate of the fund both in the amount of kroner and as an expansion of the range of environment investments Norges Bank can undertake,” she said.Norges Bank Investment Management is the institution running the NOK5trln (€602bn) sovereign wealth fund, which is built on revenue from Norway’s petroleum activity in the North Sea. ”In addition, the government with the Liberals and Christian Democrats agreed to ask a group of experts to look at what measures the government pension fund can take about the problem of greenhouse gas emissions from coal and petroleum companies,” Solberg told the conference.This showed the government took the climate threat seriously, and also that it was continuing to make rigorous academic studies before making decisions about the management of the GPFG, she said. Solberg said Norway needed economic growth that was not based on the increasing use of fossil fuels.“We need green growth,” she said, adding: “Only then can we can we ensure a good legacy for the next generation.” The Norwegian government has firm plans to broaden the mandate of the Government Pension Fund Global (GPFG) – the former oil fund – to let it increase the number of environmentally-targeted  investments.Prime Minister Erna Solberg said there would be concrete proposals for the fund to invest in sustainable companies and set up a separate mandate for renewable energy.In the new coalition government’s declaration in October — the Sundvolden Declaration — it stated that it would establish an investment programme within the GPFG aiming to invest in sustainable companies and projects in poor countries, Solberg told the government’s climate conference yesterday.The declaration also said that the government would consider establishing a separate mandate for renewable energy, with the same management requirements as for other investments in the fund, she said.last_img read more
