How solar power can help reduce inequality
Issued on: Modified:
In “Observers Take Action”, we take a look at projects around the world that aim to improve people’s daily lives. Among them are several projects around solar energy, notably in Africa. In this week’s show, we head to Ivory Coast to check out backpacks equipped with solar panels, giving schoolchildren electricity to help them study in the evenings, and to Guinea where a new technique to collect salt uses the sun’s rays.
