Title

Environmental movements in Sub-Saharan Africa: a political ecology of power and conflict

Author

Obi, Cyril I.

Description

This paper examines environmental movements in sub-Saharan Africa by drawing on two cases: the movement for the survival of Ogoni People of Nigeria's Niger Delta and the Green Belt Movement of Kenya. Its thesis is that environmental movements in Africa operate within a transformative logic in which struggles for power over environmental resources connect broader social struggles for empowerment and democracy.
