Abstract: Let $ X$ be a projective manifold of dimension $ n$. Beltrametti and
Sommese conjectured that if $ A$ is an ample divisor such that $ K_X+\linebreak (n-1)A$ is nef, then $ K_X+(n-1)A$ has non-zero global sections. We prove a weak version of this conjecture in arbitrary dimension. In dimension three, we prove the stronger non-vanishing conjecture of Ambro, Ionescu and Kawamata and give an application to Seshadri constants.
