Mining of cobalt, copper in DRC leading to human rights abuses

Climate justice demands a just transition. Decarbonising the global economy must not lead to further human rights violations. The people of the DRC experienced significant exploitation and abuse during the colonial and post-colonial era, and their rights are still being sacrificed as the wealth around them is stripped away.” https://www.aljazeera.com/news/2023/9/12/mining-of-cobalt-copper-in-drc-leading-to-human-rights-abuses-report

          The exploitation of natural resources in the DRC for economic gain should not come at the cost of human rights violations. A just transition towards a decarbonized economy must prioritize the well-being and rights of the people affected by mining activities.
