In 2022, the impact of Greenpeace Africa was undeniable, and so much of that relied on the longstanding relationships that our staff have developed with communities through years of dedicated organising.

In the Congo Basin, we worked with indigenous communities to expose the looming plans for oil drilling, bolstering them with training and essential information. In Cameroon, we took a stand against the Camvert palm oil venture, highlighting the multifaceted dangers of deforestation, biodiversity loss, and community displacement it poses. In Senegal, our team worked with women fish processors and fishermen’s associations to collectively confront fishmeal factories and industrial overfishing. And in South Africa, our policy and legal expertise contributed to our coalition’s significant victory against Shell’s Wild Coast oil drilling operations, a big win for environmental and cultural preservation.
