International Oceans Tribunal


The Green Connection held its first-ever international Oceans Tribunal on the 21 – 22 of September its aim was to give a platform to coastal communities to express their concerns regarding the negative impacts offshore oil and gas will pose to their livelihoods. That is when the announcement was made by NERSA about Karpowership license being approvedThe coastal communities clearly stated that they do not want Karpowerships nor oil and gas as their livelihoods depend on oceans for living. The DMRE gave all the emergency power bidders including Karpower an extension to reach financial close by the 30 of January 2022 where the initial deadline was 31 July 2021.
