‘Petroleum’ book

8 June, 2021

Project ‘Petroleum: Area Albania’ is ready to become a book. After completing the reportage, MÓN’s team is ready to announce that an actual publication will be available very soon.

This story portraits a major socio-environmental conflict in central-southern Albania, a main spot concerned by oil pollution, which affects directly about 27,000 residents. Agriculture and oil refining are the main sources of income in this place. Poor investment in agriculture and decaying infrastructure have left many people with no other option that looking to migrate to Western Europe.
