How to keep local seed markets going in the face of the coronavirus? Find out how we are helping farmers in Zimbabwe who struggle to get hold of seeds when many of the big seed companies have stopped selling. This has highlighted the importance of strengthening local seed markets and sharing knowledge around seed banks and seed storage.
The pandemic has highlighted the importance of universal energy access.
Powering health services and promoting clean cooking alternatives are two of the most powerful ways we can help people fight the virus and help create a world that works better for everyone.
This is Nurse Thom from Malawi. His life was transformed when the health clinic he works at got access to clean and affordable energy:
"We see some cases of asthma and breathing difficulties that are caused by fumes given off by wood and charcoal during cooking. I hope that now we have electricity in the area more people will use electric hotplates so we’ll start to see less of those problems. We’ve been able to extend our vaccination program since we got electricity. Vaccines need to be kept at a steady temperature to stay active."
