An IDS alumni, Climate Change, Development and Policy (MSc).

Currently working on promoting a wind and solar powered smart pole that can reduce the carbon footprint of streetlighting by up to 94%.
We believe the technology could contribute to transformative adaptation in off grid communities.

This will be achieved by opening opportunities for distance learning, and participation in the digital revolution.

Thus, transforming livelihoods away from farming to occupations less vulnerable to climate change.
