Briefing – Funding the fire: UK support for Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) in Mozambique

  Published:  02 Sep 2021
The UK has pledged $1.15bn to an offshore Liquid Natural Gas project in Mozambique.

Friends of the Earth is suing the UK government in a claim for judicial review, arguing that the funding decision was unlawful. This was because the project and its funding were incompatible with the UK and Mozambique's commitments under the Paris Agreement, and the UK government was wrong to conclude otherwise. The case will be heard from 7th to 9th December.
