#AceNewsReport – Nov.21: Project aimed to make UK ‘partner of choice’ in industry, but campaigners warn of potential for ecological disaster

Malawi is believed to have substantial oil deposits, including under Lake Malawi, a pristine freshwater lake – the third largest in Africa – whose southern shores are a protected Unesco world heritage site. Unesco has warned that any oil activity near the lake risks causing an ecological disaster.
