Green Hydrogen

Sustainable investment and fair trade

Pastoralism and large-scale REnewable energy and green hydrogen projects

Report

Large-scale renewable energy projects are being developed in the drylands of Africa, Asia and Latina America without adequate consultation with pastoralists that have been using the land for grazing their livestock since time memorial. This joint report by the Heinrich Böll Foundation and Bread for the World examines evidence from existing large-scale projects and derives recommendations.

Pastoralism and Large-scale Renewable Energy & Green Hydrogen projects

Online discussion on June 9th 2022

With:

  • Hussein Tadicha Wario, Center for Research and Development in Drylands, Kenya
  • Ann Waters-Bayer, Agrecol Association, Germany
  • Christian Schnohr, Press officer at ABO Wind
  • Kirsten Westphal, Executive Director at H2Global Stiftung
As the world urgently needs an energy transition, green energy production will expand even further into Kenya's drylands. The challenge here is to figure out how to prevent climatic injustice to pastoralists.
