RETO – DOSSO
Researchers back to the secondary school – Renewable energy powered water-food-economy nexus for the sustainable livelihood at Dosso Region in Niger
The aim of the RETO-DOSSO research project is to contribute to sustainable livelihoods in the rural areas of Niger by creating essential basics and enabling rural entrepreneurial activities. To achieve this, the researchers use electricity from renewable sources to provide basic needs such as water and food. Surplus electricity from a decentralized solar energy system strengthens rural economies by generating simple, but creative business ideas as local sources of income.
