Application of renewable energy for the production of healthy drinking water for the community of Gakaba
This project is a combination of clean energy to provide access to clean water making it a good community project to Climate Change. Project was stalled due to withdrawal of a key stakeholder/co-financer the BHP Billiton from the Country. In January 2012, a new co-financer has been found, namely the State Oil Company.
