Friends of the Earth Africa demande à la CEDEAO un moratoire sur les nouvelles concessions foncières pour des plantations industrielles (En)

« A regional civil society group "Friends of the Earth Africa" has launched a campaign intended to urge ECOWAS to put in place a moratorium on new land-based concessions for industrial plantations. Their struggle, according to Rita Uwaka, is against the corporate takeover of forests in Africa. According to Uwaka, land for industrial plantation expansion by corporations is not a fight against development but a struggle to prevent further human rights violations, environmental damage, and biodiversity and livelihood loss. »
