2 June 2018

Today, Nigerian and international civil society organisations repeated their call for the immediate start of the long overdue clean-up of oil pollution in Ogoniland in Nigeria's Niger Delta. This should be undertaken in line with recommendations made by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) in its landmark 2011 study of the region.

Friends of the Earth Europe works to prevent the extractive industries from destroying people's lives, the environment and the climate. We believe that resources should be utilised fairly and sustainably. Enforceable rules and practices are required to ensure that natural resources are a blessing, not a curse.

 

We are working to create the much-needed, fair and urgent transition to a fossil fuel free Europe by 2030 - dismantling the fossil fuel system and creating the just, clean energy future that people want and need.
