Africa Synthesis Report: People in Lockdown, Extractives in Business

Africa Synthesis Report: People in Lockdown, Extractives in Business

WoMin and partners sought to understand the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic through a series of dialogues and processes entitled People in Lockdown, Extractive Industries in Business. This synthesis report explores the key findings of five long case studies (Namibia, Tanzania, Uganda, Mali and Côte d’Ivoire) presented a part of the series. The reports highlight how the crises faced by the African continent escalate as capitalism continues to descend into deeper crises and contradictions.
