A Green initiative brightens Bangladesh

70% of all families living in Bangladesh’s countryside are not connected to the national electricity grid; the power lines either haven’t reached their villages or the cost of connection is too high for them. But now, with help from the ILO and Australia, and encouraged by the central government some villagers can get low cost solar power as an alternative energy source. And new skills are required to bring solar power to Bangladesh’s villages, which is creating the demand for “green jobs” to get the job done. The video is made possible through the support of Green Jobs in Asia project under the ILO-Australian Government Partnership Agreement 2010-2015.
