In 2012, the discovery of oil off the coast of Doevi Kope, Togo, was confirmed. If the oil is drilled it will affect not only Doevi Kope but also other villages notably Gbetsogbe and Katanga.

When the government failed to inform the communities of the oil discovery, Les Amis de la Terre Togo/ Friends of the Earth Togo alerted communities to the potential drillings and its impacts. Now the Doevi Kope community are united in resisting the possible onslaught of oil exploration. This is their story.

Join us in the fight to end oil and dirty energy. Clean community energy is the answer!
