India's ministry of shipping is to invest 100 million rupees (US$ 1.5 million) in improving ship recycling conditions at the Alang-Sosiya recycling yard in Gujarat. Most of the money will go into workforce safety training. The investment forms part of India’s Coastal Community Development Programme and an estimated 30 million rupees will be spent in this field over the next three years. This shipbreaking training initiative has been designed according to the National Skill Qualification Framework and will focus on safety issues likely to lead to injury, death or chronic occupational diseases.
