An article published by INNOPATHS researchers Benjamin K. Sovacool, Andrew Hook, Mari Martiskainen, Andrea Brock and Bruno Turnheim has been featured in the Research Highlights sections of recent issues of both Nature Human Behaviour and Nature Climate Change. The article, The decarbonisation divide: Contextualizing landscapes of low-carbon exploitation and toxicity in Africa, analyses the ‘decarbonisation divide’ between low-carbon transition and patterns of waste extraction. The decarbonisation divide (Nature Human Behaviour) highlights the potential environmental and human cost of supply chains for low-carbon technologies, whilst Dark side of low carbon (Nature Climate Change) focusses on the analysis of the impact of the rising demand for low-carbon technologies on countries responsible for extraction of raw materials and disposal.
