The Rugezi Marsh in northern Rwanda is the source of many lakes and rivers – a source of life. But it’s being sucked dry by agriculture. Sustainable forestry could halt the process.
On this week's Eco Africa, houses made from plastic bottles in Nigeria, a Kenyan start-up for fresh fish, and a project in Ghana fighting to save the endangered hippo.
Renewable technology is bringing light into the lives of Kalunga people, descendants of slaves living in remote communities in Brazil. Now, solar powered lamps made from recycled bottles are extending their evenings.
Building a completely solar-powered town is a challenge, even in very sunny Florida. And not just for technical reasons. Getting average buyers to go green sometimes means having to compromise.
On this week's eco@africa, we see the work of wastepickers in Nairobi, explore declining seagrass in Germany, and meet the snake handlers of Zimbabwe.
