Abstract [en]

The recent global trend of energy consumption shows that new sources of minerals are needed to sustain the demand that is expected in the following years. One of the suggestions that has emerged to provide minerals is mining the seafloor, which even if mostly unexplored, seems to be potentially rich in copper and other minerals. The possible imminent first deep-sea mining project in Papua New Guinea, called Solwara 1, could be the beginning of a new phase in the history of mining. However, the project has raised questions about the risks in terms of environmental damages and socio-economic changes that the citizens of Papua New Guinea might not be able to handle. This paper conducts a discourse analysis of the case, studying its sustainability through the storylines approach, focusing on the impacts on the environment and society.
