    French president Sarkozy announced on Nov. 27 in Port of Spain, the capital of Trinidad & Tobago, that the UK and France will propose to establish a USD 30 billion global environmental fund.

    The proposal was made by Sarkozy after he participated the discussion on cliamte change of the commanwealth summit, which is held once every two years. He said in the press conference that if the proposal is approved, it will be used to help poor countries fight against the climate change in the following three years. Many commanwealth members are island states threatening by the rising sea levels. France and the UK will provide a part of financial support to the fund.
