  • Malawi's Quiet Solar Energy Revolution (MoJo Velo Film 14)

    The Africa Progress Panel estimates that it may take until 2080 to connect all Africans to a centralised grid electricity system. In the absence of grid electricity, small-scale off-grid solar is undergoing huge growth across Africa. It’s a potential leapfrogging technology for sustainable development. On the shore of Lake Malawi, the Zayed Solar Academy is aiming to catapult Malawi onto the solar bandwagon.

  • Zambia, Zimbabwe give French firm go-ahead to fix Kariba Dam

    Zambia and Zimbabwe will give French engineering firm Razel-Bec the task of repairing Kariba Dam. The dam's walls are swelling, raising the risk of cracks in the structure that holds back up to 180 billion cubic metres of water. A collapse of the dam wall could pose a risk to millions of people in Zambia and Zimbabwe -- as well as Malawi and Mozambique further downstream. The dam was built in the 1950s. According to its safety manager, the expansion should be completed by the end of 2020, while work on the spillway to contain the swelling is expected to be done by 2022.
