Niger – Rich in Resources, Enabler of Energy, Resilient in Recession

Niger is endowed with plentiful natural resources, including the world’s largest deposits of uranium. Nuclear fuel derived from Niger’s uranium is an important source of Europe’s cheap, clean energy. Why does the country consistently receive low scores on the United Nations Human Development Index? Adam Barnes explores the contradiction between Niger’s facilitation of wealth creation abroad and chronic, widespread poverty at home.

Adam Barnes is currently working on his Doctorate in Comparative Theology at Union Theological Seminary in New York City. He also works closely with the social movement organization Poverty Initiative at the Kairos Center for Religions, Rights and Social Justice.
