Coronavirus – Somalia: Historic moment for Somalia with the arrival of COVID-19 vaccines via the COVAX centerAs we celebrate the second anniversary of Tropical Cyclone Idai, the United Nations is honored to continue to stand in solidarity with the people and Government of Mozambique. In the aftermath of unprecedented back-to-back Cyclone Idai and Cyclone Kenneth, I traveled to the country and saw first-hand the devastation and recovery efforts. I will never forget him. I was deeply moved by the strength and resilience of all those affected – and I was also inspired by the heroism of the first responders. The force of the storm is a reminder that time is running out for the world to take action on climate change. Tropical storms are becoming more and more intense and frequent. Parts of Africa are warming twice as fast as the world. Indeed, Africa is the least responsible for climatic disturbances, but it is among the first and the worst to suffer from it. The world […]

Regional integration at the forefront of Mozambique’s energy success (by Charnè Hundermark)

Regional integration at the forefront of Mozambique’s energy success (by Charnè Hundermark)By Charnè Hundermark As one of the major resource-rich countries in sub-Saharan Africa, Mozambique has the potential not only to significantly advance its own socio-economic status, but also to significantly boost economic growth across the region. According to the World Bank Group, regional integration helps countries overcome the divisions that hamper the flow of goods, services, capital, people and ideas. While large-scale energy projects are expected to be commissioned in Mozambique until 2023, the country has seen a renewed political commitment to establish sustainable regional integration with neighboring governments and private operators. By prioritizing cross-border cooperation throughout its energy value chain, Mozambique is well positioned to achieve common goals, including widespread electrification, establishing energy security and accessing a regional market. wider. Hydropower stimulates regional electrification Mozambique is one of the major electricity exporters in southern Africa, largely due to its significant hydropower resources and growing potential for gas-to-electricity production.

Digitization Offers High Returns to Emerging Gas Producers Like Mozambique (by Grace Goodrich)

Digitization Offers High Returns to Emerging Gas Producers Like Mozambique (by Grace Goodrich)By Grace Goodrich The benefits of digital investing in the oil and gas industry are manifold: increased productivity, cost savings, and improved performance all tend to follow investments in big data, the ‘Internet of Things’, intelligence artificial and other digital technologies. Yet, according to the Deloitte Digital Maturity Index released last May, upstream oil and gas lags significantly behind other industries in the pace and degree of digital adoption. Resistance to digitization in the upstream energy space can be attributed to several factors, some of which apply to hydrocarbon producers regardless of the maturity of their assets or the sophistication of their industry. For example, the oil and gas industry imposes strict health and safety regulations to protect employees from high-risk environments, such as offshore oil rigs, and therefore companies cannot leave – implement automated or robotic technologies without ensuring that new technologies sufficiently take safety precautions into account.

Africa can and must decide how to harness its natural resources, especially with gas (by NJ Ayuk)By NJ Ayuk, Executive Chairman, African Energy Chamber (www.EnergyChamber.org) Pressure is mounting to phase out oil production in Africa to combat climate change. But strategically operated, Africa’s oil and gas industry can secure a brighter future for Africa. Are calls to “keep it in place” really in Africa’s best interest? Do a Google search for “Help Africa” ​​and you know how many results you will get? 1.7 BILLION. “Help the children in Africa.” “African hunger and how to help” “Save Africa from climate change.” There is even a strategy for the latter: to keep Africa’s oil resources in the ground. The reasoning is this: if we produce less fossil fuels, we will emit less carbon and be better protected from climate change. The international community supports this idea. BlackRock and Royal Bank of Scotland have said they are moving away from investments that support fossil fuel production. The Organization for […]

Africa needs pragmatic free market policies to attract capital to gas markets (By NJ Ayuk)By NJ Ayuk Speaking at International Petroleum Week (IP) on February 25, 2021, I commended Nigeria for its efforts to boost gas monetization, but we need to be clear that our industry and hardworking workers remain frustrated by delays and inability to pass and sign the Petroleum Industry Bill. There must be this fierce sense of the urgency of the moment, especially in the era of energy transition. The Petroleum Industry Bill (BIP) must be passed as it allows energy companies to focus on producing energy that boosts our economies. This will allow politicians to focus on other pressing issues such as the African Continental Free Trade Area (AfCTA) and security issues. Africa is well positioned to become a key global LNG supplier. Mozambique, Nigeria, Equatorial Guinea, Senegal and Tanzania are potential players. But we have to be honest, Africa is falling behind.

Mozambique: Violence and extreme weather hold back medical care for thousands

Mozambique: Violence and extreme weather hold back medical care for thousandsHealth centers and health workers have had a difficult year in Mozambique. The health system has been the double victim of Cyclone Kenneth and a large-scale outbreak of violence that has led to the flight of health workers and the destruction of more health facilities. That includes facilities that were rehabilitated after being damaged by the cyclone. According to an assessment by ICRC health experts, 39 of the 55 health facilities, or 71% of them, in nine conflict-affected Cabo Delgado districts are not operational. In addition, 686 health professionals have left their workplaces due to insecurity. Violence and lack of medical care have forced more than 500,000 people to flee their homes in the Cabo Delgado region.
