Malawi: Torn between the lure and danger of uranium

A project to mine uranium in northern Malawi...promises to spur economic development in the area, but fears of serious health hazards...have aroused the country's civil society...(NGOs)...have called for an independent review of the environmental impact study, and are concerned about the possible social impact on neighbouring communities and exposure to radiation...Paladin has maintained that the EIA "was conducted in strict accordance with the law and to the highest international standards".
