Environmental protection is a key plank in the exploitation of resources in a manner that ensures intergenerational equity. To achieve this, the communities where the explorations are taking place should be meaningfully engaged so that they can ‘own’ and thus partake in the shared prosperity. Our work entails around in this thematic area will build synergies with other thematic areas on issues around fair trade that includes advocating against dumping of waste in Africa.
ENA prioritizes this sector so that the people are part of the discourse and thus benefit from their resources while ensuring that the environment is also protected for the current and future generations. We will devise innovative interventions that will ensure that the resources are harnessed in a sustainable manner. Our interest in the space is in facilitating the public and civic actors to effectively engage in the processes and hold the different players accountable to their commitments and obligations.
