Publication Information

This report was prepared by the Secretariat of the Pacific Regional Environment Programme (SREP). Report is produced in partnership between the Government of Tuvalu, EU, supported by NZMFAT, Government of Finland and PIGGAREP. PIGGAREP is funded through the Global Environment Facility (GEF), implemented by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) in Samoa, and executed by the Secretariat of the Pacific Regional Environment Programme (SPREP).

In February 2015, PIGGAREP sent a small team to the remote islands of Tuvalu to find out about how access to 24-hour solar power looks set to change people’s lives. This publication, and a companion film, document some of the discussions between the PIGGAREP team and local communities about the many benefits that will come about as a result of powering up remote Tuvalu by solar.
