inFRONT: Inside Investment Frontiers of Sustainability Transitions


New article published from the InFRONT team

As the importance of natural gas in transitioning to a low-carbon future, in increasing energy security and/or in reducing energy poverty in Mozambique and elsewhere remains prominent, it is also crucial to understand and deal with the negative impacts that accompany such large-scale extractive projects. Emilinah Namaganda, Kei Otsuki and Griet Steel have published a paper titled “Learning from Africana critical theory: A historicized contextualization of the impacts of Mozambique’s natural gas project”. In the paper, the authors argue that the impacts of contemporary extractivism in Mozambique need to be more historically contextualized. They draw on and propose Africana critical theory to historically understand the impacts of contemporary extractivism in Mozambique.
