The Somali Charcoal Industry-Strange Bedfellows

The Institute for Defense Analysis (IDA) Africa Watch published on 10 July 2014 a brief account titled "The Somali Charcoal Industry-Strange Bedfellows" by George F. Ward, research staff member at IDA.

The article, which is based on a major report dealing with global environmental issues by the UN Environmental Program (UNEP) and Interpol, comments on the unusual ties in the illegal charcoal trade involving al-Shabaab, the Gulf States, the Ras Kamboni militia, and the Kenyan Defense Forces in Somalia.
