Fossil fuel expansion in Africa – Dismantling the fossil fuel industry

At a time when global climate initiatives are at the forefront, Africa is witnessing a surge in oil and gas projects. Countries such as Senegal, Namibia, South Africa, Mozambique, and Uganda are exploring their fossil fuel potential. Our new project investigates case studies from across the continent.

In our cross-border research project, we will be investigating the shifts in Africa's fossil fuel industry, with the aim of providing a comprehensive picture of the fossil fuel rollback across the continent.
