Welcome to eco@africa

On eco@africa, we look into nano grids in rural Kenya, visit a fish farm in Nigeria and see how extreme weather is impacting Mauritania's capital, Nouakchott. All this and much more on the latest show!

This week's eco@africa takes you from Kenya to Venice!

First, we visit the Rennajj Fish Farm which has become a haven for Nigerian wetland wildlife and given some hope to the country's threatened forests.

After that we see how a ship builder is making electric ferries in Germany. Theses boats not only skip over the diesel engine and save on petrol; the electric motors are also peacefully silent. 

Back in Africa we have a look at how extreme weather in Mauritania is impacting the safety and health of Nouakchott's 1 million residents.

Then we join Venice's battle against colossal cruise ships which are threatening the city's delicate and venerable cultural heritage, while hordes of tourists flood the city and increasingly annoy residents.

Finally, we take a look at a "Dimitra" club in Senegal. Such clubs have been set up in many parts of Africa and allow locals to vote on how to initiate different projects. Uniquely, these clubs give women and young people the chance to see their ideas realized.

Check out the show and let us know what you think at ecoafrica@dw.com.
