Emmanuel Umpula Nkumba

Executive Director, African Resources Watch (AFREWATCH), DRC

He is interested in the energy sector and the energy transition. As such, he coordinates a project that aims not only to create a south-south synergy on the issue of energy transition and climate change, but also the creation of a new narrative on the subject. Mr. Umpula also works on the formalisation of the artisanal mining sector in the DRC, particularly in the copper and cobalt sector. In this regard, he has published or co-published several reports, notably on child labor in cobalt mines in the DRC in 2016 and the supply of artisanal cobalt in the DRC in 2021.
