Solar Charging to Increasing Communication

Solar Charging to Increasing Communication

Information and communication technology broadens opportunities for rural communities in Papua New Guinea. Fairtrade ANZ’s ICT project, funded through the United Nations International Fund for Agricultural Development, sought to strengthen the link between farmers and Fairtrade markets, through the investment into several interventions including the supply of portable solar chargers. Solar chargers were identified as a key recommendation to address the targeted groups’ lack of reliable and safe power sources. The provision of solar chargers was reported to significantly increase members ability to communicate with each other, Fairtrade ANZ and partner organisations.
