Energy Injustice and its Role for Environmental Peacebuilding

Carpo Report

This Report discusses the crucial but understudied impact of oil extraction industries on local communities and the environment in Yemen’s Hadhramawt governorate. By combining conceptual approaches of energy justice and the environmental peacebuilding literature, it provides a novel perspective on how environmental pollution via the oil industry in Yemen creates injustices and grievances and might hamper sustainable peace efforts. The report was published within the framework of the Support Program “Conflict, Climate Change and Environment in the Middle East”, organized by Robert Bosch Stiftung.
