The self-governing British overseas territory of Montserrat is striving to rebuild after being rendered partly uninhabitable by volcanic eruptions. Part of the Leeward Islands chain, Montserrat has been plagued by sporadic ash falls and lava flows since 1995 when the Soufriere Hills volcano erupted for the first time in centuries. Once an economic mainstay, tourism was badly hit and Montserrat has relied heavily upon British and EU aid (BBC, 2019).
