  • Uranium Mine in Niger Taken Over by French Forces Amid Mali Battles

    02/04/2013 French troops have been called to protect one of Niger's biggest uranium mines as security fears spike. Analyst John Laughland tells RT, that France taking the military lead in Mali and coming to Niger might be a sign of a continent-size interest. Niger's President Issoufou asked his counterpart Hollande for military help after the recent hostage crisis at an Algerian gas plant and over the growing threat of militant attacks since France launched its Operation Serval in neighboring Mali. French company Areva plays a major part in mining in Niger, the world's fifth-largest producer of uranium. The company gets much of its uranium from the two mines it operates in the country, at Arlit and Imouraren. Arlit was attacked by militants three years ago and four hostages -- three Fr...

    LEAD IN : The recent conflict in Mali did not slow the pace of development in the capital, Bamako. As the city expands, the demand for building materials is growing, and this is having consequences on the environment. The mighty Niger river has traditionally provided a livelihood for the people that live along its banks. Now the need for sand from the river is threatening the traditional industries of fishing and oil. Some fear the exploitation of the river bed has consequences for the delicate equilibrium of the river. But for the sand divers that plunder the river banks, the rewards are rich.

02/04/2013 French troops have been called to protect one of Niger's biggest uranium mines as security fears spike. Analyst John Laughland tells RT, that France taking the military lead in Mali and coming to Niger might be a sign of a continent-size interest. Niger's President Issoufou asked his counterpart Hollande for military help after the recent hostage crisis at an Algerian gas plant and over the growing threat of militant attacks since France launched its Operation Serval in neighboring Mali. French company Areva plays a major part in mining in Niger, the world's fifth-largest producer of uranium. The company gets much of its uranium from the two mines it operates in the country, at Arlit and Imouraren. Arlit was attacked by militants three years ago and four hostages -- three French nationals among them -- are still being held.Asked if he could confirm that French Special Forces are now guarding the uranium mine, President Issoufou told channel TV5: "Absolutely I can confirm." Niger's uranium mines are a major source of raw material for French nuclear power plants, so observers wonder if energy resources are a factor in the West's increased interest in the African continent. For more on that, RT talks to the director of studies at the Institute of democracy and cooperation in Paris, John Laughland. http://LeakSource.wordpress.com http://twitter.com/LeakSourceNews

www.otorq.com The rate of housing supply is insufficient to meet the demand, estimated in 2000 by the ministry in charge of housing (Ministère De l'Equipement De l'Habitat ET de l'Aménagement Du territoire) to be about 40 000 a year. The recent boom in the mining sector has accentuated rents and demand for houses in Niamey as well as in other cities. The absence of mortgage banks to provide end user finance is a major challenge to the development of housing. To meet the challenge, the government is boosting supply through policies that will induce the private sector to participate in developing housing. These initiatives include public private partnership projects; the construction of low income houses such as the Sari Koubou project, financed by the government, and the Projet la Renaissance du Niger, financed by SONUCI local banks and regional financial institutions; and facilitating access to land for developers. There are about 10 formal enterprises in the construction industry and a few in the real estate sector. Most of these focus on land acquisition from traditional proprietors and servicing the land into plots. The serviced plots are sold to potential home owners who build their homes incrementally. The majority of the potential home owners finance through savings and loans. There are different methods of financing by commercial banks and MFIs but the most popular among MFIs consists of initial savings over three to five years for land acquisition; after which a loan is granted according to the client's revenue and the guarantee. The loans in most cases are insufficient for building a home; therefore most homeowners build their homes over a period of time. Housing stock in Niger can be classified in three categories, based on the material used for construction: Construction with mud and straws and ceiling with wood (Maison en terre); Construction with mud and plaster with cement, with corrugated iron sheet for the ceiling (Maison en semi dur); and Construction with cement, concrete, stone and ceiling with corrugated iron (modern homes) (Maison en dur). The average cost of construction of the different categories depends on the geographical location, the size of the land, the plan and the quality of the material used. The three categories are found all over Niger. In the capital, housing stock is predominantly constructed with durable materials, cement and concrete. In the 40 years between 1960 and 2000, the government of Niger financed only 1 236 houses. Given this, most houses are produced through self-build. The construction of 174 government-financed houses in Niamey (Sari Koubou) in 2011 was awarded to local contractors. This project exemplifies the government's recent work in affordable housing finance. The houses are mainly for middleincome government employees. By early 2012, construction was completed and approved by technical control. The beneficiaries have signed the necessary documents for ownership and the houses are scheduled to be transferred to their owners before the end of the year. Other important projects under construction include the teachers' trade union housing programme, Capital Finance housing project, the Société Nigérienne Des Products Pétroliers (SONIDEP) villas, the customs trade union housing project and the Niger Renaissance project of SONUCI. Property Market Property prices have risen steadily over the past five years due to an increase in demand for houses and the boom in the mining sector. The price push is exacerbated by the expectation of economic growth in 2012 when Niger starts producing and exporting petroleum. Foreign investors, rich Nigerien citizens and Nigeriens from the diaspora are buying properties and investing heavily in modernising the stock of residential and commercial properties in the capital and other cities. The growth in the market is expected to continue due to the growing demand for commodities coupled with the ambitious programme of the president, known as "Niamey Nyala" or "Niamey the cute", a programme to metamorphose Niger's capital city Niamey into a modern, attractive city. According to the Doing Business 2012 survey, Niger ranks 86th globally in registering property, down from 84th in 2011. Four procedures are required to register property (less than the six procedures required on average across sub-Saharan Africa), and the process takes 35 days (almost half the sub-Saharan African average). At 11 percent, the cost of registration is relatively high; this is 1.5 percent above the Sub-Saharan average..

WE DO NOT OWN THE MATERIAL EXCLUSIVELY, BUT HAVE A LICENSE CONTRACT FOR INTERNET STREAMING. If unavailable in your territory, or if you are interested in other license requests (feature movie, television, documentary, commercial...), please contact Javafilms: contact@javafilms.fr Story The African continent is rapidly developing itself economically. The only bottleneck in this process are readily available resources. Besides money these mainly consist of poor infrastructure and availability of energy, especially electricity. Economically booming countries like for example Uganda still have a lot to gain when a steady supply of power is provided. Nowadays in Uganda the power plants can only cater for roughly 30% of the countries demand and even new hydraulic power projects in the Nile will not solve this problem. Nuclear power therefor seems the most cost effective solution for most of the African nations including Uganda. Western companies such as the French Areva fiercely lobby for more power plants on the continent. But is Atomic Energy the best solution for unstable regimes? And what does Atomic Energy and the mining of uranium mean for the wellbeing and safety of the local population and the environment? Social Interest Ever since the first nuclear reactor was build in Africa in Congo in 1958 there have been safety concerns, cause within the whole process of the production of nuclear energy a lot of things can go wrong, willingly and unwillingly, with possible devastating consequences for people and environment. For instance in 2007 the head of the Congolese research institute was arrested for illegally selling nuclear fuel rods. Also in Niger the highway where the mined uranium is transported on runs through rebel territory associated with Al-Qaida. The war in neighbouring Mali makes this transport even more risky. Besides the risks of fuel rods ending up in the wrong hands the mining of uranium itself poses danger to people and environment as well. Legal and illegal mining operations destroy ecosystems and leave the miners with radiation poisoning . Historical and Political Relevance Nuclear power, the right to enrich uranium and develop the technology to exploit its energy, has always been a difficult point in international politics. In the Cold War the threat mainly came from the war talk and power displays of archenemies the United States and the Soviet Union which both had a gigantic nuclear arsenal. As the cold war ended the threat of a nuclear war declined. However the nuclear disaster in a power plant in Chernobyl a few years earlier proved that the benefits of nuclear power also pose a big potential threat in case of incidents. However, this incident did not stop more countries from starting a nuclear program with a wide range of experiments While in the last decade the interest of the West in Nuclear power seems to decline some new players on the nuclear market, with questionable regimes like Iran and North Korea , are causing much international debate about the right to develop nuclear power. The rapidly developing African continent is in serious need of energy and has always been rich in raw resources to produce energy and is now slowly developing the knowledge to exploit them. The African continent may well be on the verge of a nuclear revolution so the political discussion about the right to use nuclear energy is more relevant than ever. Because not only questionable regimes can pose a potential threat, also war and especially terrorism are extremely dangerous, since it takes a single rocket fired by a single person to blow up a nuclear power plant.

Who gets to decide? Filmmaker Suzan Beraza documents the debate in her new film Uranium Drive-In. Rhinos are killed for their horn. But now in South Africa they face a new threat -- coal. Plans for an open cast coal mine on the border of Hluhluwe-iMfolozi Park, home to the largest population in the world of the once endangered white rhino, may bring economic development. However, these plans will also worsen air and water quality and increase poaching and crime. Jeff Barbee reports from South Africa. The indigenous people in Ecuador's Kimsakocha wetlands rely on the land's water for their livelihood -- agriculture and livestock production. But there is gold under the water and foreign mining companies are out to get it. The local people mount a fierce opposition. "Resistance will not end, we will not give up even if we are in prison," says local community leader Carlos Perez. Constantino de Miguel reports from Ecuador.

LEAD IN : The recent conflict in Mali did not slow the pace of development in the capital, Bamako. As the city expands, the demand for building materials is growing, and this is having consequences on the environment. The mighty Niger river has traditionally provided a livelihood for the people that live along its banks. Now the need for sand from the river is threatening the traditional industries of fishing and oil. Some fear the exploitation of the river bed has consequences for the delicate equilibrium of the river. But for the sand divers that plunder the river banks, the rewards are rich. STORYLINE : The sand divers begin their journey at sunrise, setting off by pirogue (traditional boats) along the River Niger. They travel fifty kilometres (31 miles) from the Kalaban-Koro harbour in the Mali capital, Bamako to set anchor in Djoliba. The waterway has traditionally been the source of oil and food for many that live along the river. But now the dig for sand is changing the way of life on the river. Many of the sand workers come from the north of Mali, and are residents of cities on the banks of the Niger. Mining sand is more profitable than setting fishing nets. Each man can earn up to 6 500 FCFA (Franc de la Communaut� Financi�re d'Afrique) a day (10 euros/ $14 US Dollars) which is a good salary in Mali, where the legal minimum salary is 45 euros ($62 dollars) per month. When they arrive at the spot in the river that they want to mine, they strip off and jump into the river, returning to the surface with buckets full of sand dredged from the riverbed. The sand divers work without breathing aids and often dive as deep as three metres to dig out the sand by hand. Toure, a sand diver originally from Timbukutu says that it is hard work but the rewards are worth it. " I can say that everything is difficult in this work. Water is cold, work in itself is hard. There is nothing easy but it's noble work. We earn our living by the sweat of our brow." After just two or three hours the pirogues are full and the men join up to fifteen boats, laden with sand, together for the journey home. Back in Bamako it will be sold for use in the construction industry for the booming city. But the industry has attracted criticism from the government agency responsible for the Niger river. Bougouzanga Goita is the director of the Niger River Agency, a government body. He says that sand mining is not regulated and it is harming the delicate river environment. " A study showed that sand mining is digging the bottom of the river, which has consequences on banks collapsing. And when 'fish house' is disturbed there is consequences on fish reproduction. Egg-laying is disturbed, eggs are exposed " A report published in 2011 was carried out by IRD (Institut de recherche pour le d�veloppement) carried out in 2011, a French research organisation which studies the relationship between man and its environment, in Africa, Mediterranean, Latin America, Asia and the French tropical overseas territories, in collaboration with Malian National Direction of Hydraulique and French universities. It found that between 15 and 20 millions of cubic metres (m3) of material may have been taken from the river between 2000 and 2006 from around 90 miles (144 kilometres) north from Bamako to 90 miles (144 kilometres) south from Bamako. The report authors warned that the river is actually becoming deeper in places, by several centimetres annually and that depletion of the river bed resulted in the loss of arable land, deterioration of infrastructure, bridges etc and loss of fisheries, due to fishing being disturbed and lack of access of local people to water sources.
