Norway has granted millions in aid to the development of the Ugandan oil sector. Critics are arguing that the aid contributes to secrecy, corruption and inadequate legal regulations. They are urging the Norwegian government to pressure Uganda to ensure that the oil industry does not end up being a curse for the country.
When you tank up at an Esso station in Norway, you may be supporting one of Africa’s worst dictatorships. The taboo country Equatorial Guinea exports crude oil to Esso in Tønsberg.
Fertilizer giant Yara has sold the disputed phosphate project in protexted Atlantic rainforest in Brazil, which Norwatch visited last year.
Six hundred metres above the village of São Paulo Dos Pinheiros, Yara is planning to construct a 56-metre-high dam. The closest neighbour, Yolanda Schütter Back, is afraid that a flood wave will come tumbling down over her house.
Preserved forest and endangered plant and animal species must give way if Yara obtains approval for plans to extract phosphate in Brazil.

Yara is planning phosphate production in a protected rain forest area in Brazil. But three legal decisions have so far stopped the company’s environmental authorisation. On November 24th Yara’s Brazilian joint-venture company lodged an appeal.

Intex Resources has received environmental authorisation for its nickel project on Mindoro. The central authorities on the Philippines have thereby run over the local authorities, which are strongly opposed to the mining project. A large-scale hunger strike is now planned to be staged in front of the Department of Environment and Natural Resources.
Saga Petroleum’s old oil installation in the Seme field outside Benin is rusting away; oil is leaking out and risks causing great environmental problems in one of West Africa’s most abundant ocean fishing areas. Now Benin has asked Norway to help clean up.
The small Norwegian petroleum company Discover Petroleum has agreed to explore for petroleum in the middle of an untouched rain forest area in Peru – an absolute “no-go zone” according to critics.
On Sunday Discover Petroleum was thrown out of Peru because of charges of corruption. One of the top leaders of the petroleum directorate in Peru was fired that day, and the management of Discover held an emergency meeting in Stavanger.
The company AngloGold Ashanti – in which the Norwegian Government’s pension fund has invested money - is now starting their own investigations to establish whether the heavy metal damages in Nyakabale village in Tanzania is due to their operations. The company said to Norwatch that they will also consider tidying up the health threats no matter who is to blame of the conditions.
AngloGold Ashanti claims not responsible for causing any environmental damage in the Geita gold mine in Tanzania, and says that possible high levels of heavy metals could be due to mining activities during colonial times.
