Urgewald, Stop EACOP, Oilwatch Africa, Africa Coal Network and 33 further African NGOs offer an exclusive preview of their Special Report “Who is Financing Fossil Fuel Expansion in Africa?”
The original research by Urgewald and NGO partners identifies 200 companies that are exploring or developing new fossil fuel reserves or developing new fossil infrastructure such as liquefied natural gas (LNG) terminals, pipelines or gas- and coal-fired power plants in Africa.
The report features up-to-date figures on exploration capital expenditure; coal, oil, and gas development; fossil fuel infrastructure and transportation, including LNG; and the banks and investors powering the massive fossil fuel expansion across the African continent.
Please join us at COP27, Press Conference Room Luxor, on November 14, 2022, at 1:00 PM EET.
