Watch: How Solar Energy can Improve Public Health in Nigeria
Nigerians could enjoy better health care for less money if the already existing budget were invested in solar power as this animated video explains. The video is based on a study supported by the Abuja office of the Heinrich Böll Stiftung.
This special edition of Perspectives was compiled with the Heinrich Böll Foundation’s North Africa offices and the Transform Africa project. It is dedicated to the emerging conversation of alternative approaches that challenge the historical bias towards the industrialisation of agriculture and the food system as the main strategy to address food insecurity while preparing for a +2°C world.
This is a study report that examines the deplorable energy situation faced by Nigerian Primary Health Centres as well as the possibilities of improving clean energy access to the health centres through responsible fiscal policies targeted at off grid electricity.
Perspectives is a publication series of the Africa offices of the Heinrich Böll Stiftung. The series provides a platform for experts from Africa to express their views about issues pertinent to the democratic and sustainable development agenda in the region.
The latest edition of Perspectives tackles questions of state capture, and how the concept can contribute to understanding and strengthening democracies across Africa. Our contributors also open the possibilities that emerge when “state capture” is released from particular institutional settings and national boundaries.
In a series of discussion papers, partners of the Heinrich Böll Foundation Lagos program give thought-provoking suggestions for an inclusive and climate-resilient city building to the new Lagos State government which will take over on May 29, 2019. The ideas are based on the findings of our research “Urban Planning Processes in Lagos”; many of them could be implemented within a short time span requiring in general low funding but transparent and efficient cooperation between different stakeholders; above all it will require political will.
