[the Economist] Namibian uranium powering new nuclear infrastructure in Cote D'Ivoire
A recent development project in Cote D'Ivoire is under way as the country tries to develop clean and cheap energy for it's burgeoning economy. Using funds provided by western countries, withing the framework of ECOSOC, to purchase uranium from Nambia in order to build nuclear power plants in it's southern region.
It is unsure how much this project will cost, considering nuclear power stations are long-term and expensive projects, especially since access to technical knowledge required. This knowledge is only held by a limited number of countries. So who will Cote D'Ivoire turn to for the development of this project?
