Saudi Arabia plans to explore and mine uranium in the Al Hail province. This is in the core of its ambition to achieve a self-sufficient nuclear programme. Saudi Arabia is hungry for energy to enable large-scale seawater desalination to meet its water needs, and to drive forward its industrial development. Possible environmental impacts of uranium extraction, increased desalination activities, and a fast-paced industrial development model are compounded by the repressive and opaque nature of the Saudi regime that will stifle consultation, accountability, and mitigation to ensure some level of environmental justice. Furthermore, through the power of its political influence and financial resources, environmental impacts risk spilling over or being exported to neighbouring states, further widening the scope of injustice.
