5:32 pm
located east of madagascar in the middle of the indian ocean, la rayon hawes cities of an ambitious goal. by 2028. the island wants to completely read itself of the fossil fuels and also switch all of its energy production to the renewables in africa has taken a look at what progress has been made so far. with reunion island is famed for its beautiful beaches and large green mountains. but it comes to carbon emissions. the islands redcoat is less attractive. around 2 thirds of its energy needs are covered by fossil fuel. these heavy oil factory in the city of flu pool is run by french utility e d f. in future it's you to switch to luckily couple neutral operation running on calls are in soil. just one step towards achieving an ambitious goal. switching to
5:33 pm
renewables completely by 2028. this power plant owned by obama runs partly on coal from south africa in partly on domestic bio mass. it will need to switch completely to bio mass in future. the sugar refinery next door it his provides a convenient source of the quinn. fuel gun will utilize as much of the sugar cane as possible. we pressed the liquid out of it in descent and f court in the kens, gets distributed on the surrounding fields as fit laser. the molasses go to the ram distilleries. the albumen pars teaching, uses the plant fables to produce image that flows into the public grid from which we then draw our electricity, is oh, by that him on the bottom of the albumen power plant, accounts for around 11 percent of the islands overall in 80 output the conversion to all bye, almost production is costing the company 200000000 euros. and that's just for this
5:34 pm
one plant. and i see no, we wally doesn't, did the visa, i went to new storage toms, they have a capacity of 9500 cubic meters each. you have, these are the kind of units remain you use. like we planned to his sustainable bio mass that meets european union standard. my wife will initially use would pellets from the united states, but will later switch to suppliers closer to home, like in mozambique and south africa. her pre qualified font deposit. i known issue oil as it was on ega. i think you should only 10 percent of the would pallets will be sourced from the island. that means 900000 tons a you will need to be imported. the company sees it will still cut the plants over carbon footprint by over 80 percent that environmental activities. john claude food vasa says, importing ward is not a sustainable solution. is for effectiveness of cause this factor is need to be
5:35 pm
converted, but we also need to build up our domestic production of bio mass that will be better for the environment in creates more jobs for tulsa build this house. if few years ago. it's a creepy with solar panels into solar boiler. no closet. so i'm just making t. i'm hitting the water with solar power in the herbs are for my gardens, make it. it blocked on the co garage and korea there. how's his built in ventilation? so he doesn't need air conditioning, it uses only if 3rd of the energy that his old house required. so he has surplus electricity that he sells to the public greed. he says many more homes could be converted to solar power without great expense, nor collage of the manner for wildlife. it's around him is all i could show you.
5:36 pm
plenty of houses go still do new solar power. if they all had solar panels into solar boilers that would already cover half of the islands in need, you need to we are the counselor poor satisfy our 2nd po holly neighbors rendition together. but kristin got strows the latrice to produce during the day to feed it into the greed it peak times, understood, kill energy, panola lawfully more. the company plans to expand this model and multiply it solar output 6 volt. that would be another important tip towards achieving genius core of covered all its image needs with cupboard neutral renewables. by 2028. it would be good if more returns followed a law ringing is example. if carbon emissions content wise and checked the art could warm up by 5 degrees in the next a 100 years, according to the intergovernmental panel on climate change, that would have catastrophic consequences. thus right, sandra here in africa,
5:37 pm
farmers already struggling with climate change periods of drawled extreme heat. no rainy season to cope with the difficult conditions was leader this knowledge in book, in the far so there is a project that uses unusual means to pass that knowledge on to farmers. at 1st glance, bama is a village, like many orders in book in a fossil, but it's also part of an ambitious pilot project aimed at bringing helpful information to the countries raw regions. here, small hoarder farmers can use their forms as, as radio programs. the feature agricultural in for me in 4 local languages called transmission a tear program as practical ideas and suggestions. the listeners lang . my uncle, you, thanks to this radio show that i call i learned how to get with laser pellets from

yada. i'm from a about any finance we found out about the bucket s m channel and learn how it works, what we really appreciate. and the best thing is that with just a few clicks, you can call up and look into older program equity. don't show that is a great feature. it got sick if you want them in a goal or let me me the technology behind it is simple summer's going call of programs free of charge. possible radio transmitters doesn't use of data volume or require some cat. all that's necessary is to be within a specific 6 kilometer range. the radius patient, dumber delay, one of the project partners can be listened to in the middle of rise fields. some of the programs can be access later on demand by people unable to listen to live broadcast by those who don't have radios. time behind a microphone is given to farmers, but also because you will experts,
5:39 pm

5:40 pm
certain topics. so the for the group here in bama has a major influence on our program and through their products. you know, the publisher the device is coming from a project partner in germany and of finance by the german development agency g. i said the program tag has regions with poor or no radio reception example for in fast predictor briefly, we piloted pockets of feminine but deeply bomber about dear bull. good and in the cascades region is set faster in it. a comprehensive cafe couldn't, which was so successful that we want to introduce bucket have them in the rest, are back in a facile in the coming weeks and months. passenger down there, push instrumental approach m one in the future video clips will also be available even without internet connection. the team is currently shooting one about vegetable diseases and how to treat them. but regardless of our multimedia, it becomes pocket fm will continue to record those issues and need nearest and

5:43 pm
we're here because of the fast fashion problem. all the issue with trends that people go after and they just buy and buy and buy and the clothes go to 3rd world countries that they burned them and they put him in the ground and just creates a lot of pollution. there is no reason for us not to buy secondhand clothes, to use what we have. the message is clear, function can be fun, but it's even better to make it sustainable. ah, ah, then how about you? if you are also doing your best, tell us about it, visit our website, or send us a tweet. patch tag doing your bit. ah, we share your stories. sustainability is key. the united nation as declared 2022, the international yee of autism or fisheries,

5:51 pm
and anyway, like, it's not really a profitable business particularly. okay, yes, you can earn a bit of, but the income is very irregular. that's why i decided to stop hunting is angeline snoopy shaheed. usually now, he only gets to see the animals in video footage. the researchers have set up 17 trial cameras in the part of the forest rigorously. besides chimpanzees and gorillas, these forest elephants are also threatened with extinction. and the extremely shy drills are particularly at risk. the ebel forest research project was set up by the san diego z wildlife alliance which supports primate conservation. it's been collaborating with the villagers for more than 10 years. many of them used to be poachers. now they've learned to
