NGO’s protest letter: Proper impact assessments must be minimum condition for EBRD loan involving “fracking” in Tunisia
Advocacy letter | 2 July 2013
A USD 60 million loan to Serinus Energy for a project that involves hydraulic fracturing (“fracking”) concessions in Tunisia is being currently considered by the EBRD. In this letter, Tunisian and European organisations urge the EBRD to reject the loan at the next Board meeting or to postpone the decision and undertake proper assessment of its impacts with in-depth consultations of the stakeholders.
