Leave Fossil
Fuels Underground


This project analyses, develops and shares successful strategies and arguments on ‘Leaving Fossil Fuels Underground’ (LFFU) emerging from Africa and Latin America at multiple levels of governance. We assess these LFFU initiatives - with a special focus on LFFU in South Africa and Ecuador and their potential for upscaling in other countries and regions. The climate challenge requires aglobal phase out of fossil fuels and calls for a global transition. Through aprocess of co-creating new knowledge with various stakeholders as well as connecting to, and expanding, existing networks, this project expects to have positive impact on

the promotion of LFFU. +INFO
