DW WORLD STORIES PROGRAM TEASER - February 7, 2014
On this edition, we visit politically active rappers in Tunisia. We take a look back at a Pakistani girl who died young, but whose short and brilliant life is well worth celebrating. We see how solar panels promise to improve the quality of life for refugees returning to Bosnia-Herzegovina. We meet a craftsman in Mexico who makes Zoque masks. And we learn about the recognition gays, lesbians, bisexuals and transgender people are achieving in Vietnam.
Bosnia and Herzegovina - Solar Solution
Since the end of the war in Bosnia and Herzegovina in 1995, more than a million refugees have returned to the country. Most of their houses have been rebuilt, but many in rural regions still lack electricity. The government has no funding to extend the power grid, but since 2013 the United Nations Development Program has been testing proposals for renewable energy solutions. Pavle Banjac from the UNDP shows how solar panels have finally brought electricity to the Rodić family.
