Unveiling China’s impact on African environment

Unveiling China’s impact on African environment
Unveiling China’s impact on African environment
China’s economic involvement in Africa has recently attracted unprecedented global attention. Chinese interest in the oil, gas and other natural resources on the continent entails – it is alleged – more harm than good for Africa’s environment. Yet much of the discussion about China’s role in Africa is conducted in the absence of the most basic information and raw data. We believe that despite all the obvious informational obstacles, the secrecy veil on the China’s African involvement can be lifted. And this, in turn, could produce a more accurate picture of the real impact on the Africa’s environment.

Abstract

China’s economic involvement in Africa has recently attracted unprecedented global attention. Chinese interest in the oil, gas and other natural resources on the continent entails – it is alleged – more harm than good for Africa’s environment. Yet much of the discussion about China’s role in Africa is conducted in the absence of the most basic information and raw data. We believe that despite all the obvious informational obstacles, the secrecy veil on the China’s African involvement can be lifted. And this, in turn, could produce a more accurate picture of the real impact on the Africa’s environment.
