9:34 pm
a year in uganda the news to of is also more efficient than conventional designs which other. you can cook anything on the stove and save a lot of the stoves have really helped us because after building them here the company gives you the volcanic rocks. we have since given up using charcoal and only use charcoal dust which we used to light the rocks i now just spend a quarter of the money i used to spend on charcoal. water you. insult western uganda at the foot of mount dora it has provided new opportunities for farming families. trained and employed a number of groups to extract their rocks which i later collected intake into the company premisses.

forestation of the african continent. we go from uganda to russia way it looks quite different from the victoria right behind me the eco system in left money in the autonomous russian republic of congo is under serious through it with its pelican numbers in recent years the poker numbers have reduced by 50 percent that's right sondra and who's to blame yet again the experts say are old friends climate change and pollution wrecking the lakes delicate balance in who africa take stock of one of europe's biggest public and reservations. in some of its shallow say line lake in southern russia as republic of color makiya attracts countless birds some of them have journeyed thousands of kilometers to get here and while there are dozens of different species it's the pelican population
9:37 pm
that environmentalist are looking at most closely the birds have been coming to lake money for centuries but this year numbers are down. the population has fallen. last year there were about 700 and this year there are only about $500.00. that's because there were a lot of cormorants among them last year and we don't have that many ponds now to provide enough fish. the lake itself is 344 square kilometers an area and has an average depth of just 0.6 meters but the effects of global warming are causing it to shrink as the water level goes down range bob each f. explains some of the islands that pelicans nested on have become peninsulas attached to the shore. managers becoming shallow in some places which means it's accessible to predators and as soon as predators come into play
9:38 pm
the colonies gone. we have younger island right here and last year the pelicans used it to nest this year the water is too shallow and foxes have turned up so the pelicans in cormorants are gone. the lake money to go to low wetlands are of vital importance to more than just pelicans they're also a migration habitat for millions of geese and ducks. twice a year large flock stop over to rest and refuel before moving on. but it's the pelicans that are most affected by the dramatic changes in the lakes ecosystem . come on my bus is food is becoming increasingly scarce habitats are deteriorating pollution is on the rise feeding even a few offspring they only lay a couple of their eggs is becoming harder and harder. so the population is
9:39 pm
declining she's going to. it's a question. for locals and tourists who come to love the pelicans its hope that something can be done before these graceful birds disappear for good. while. announcer this week's doing your bit it's about that construction means concrete and how to make its production more environmentally friendly it's hard to imagine any infrastructure project anywhere in the world without thinking about. german scientists and the african partners in nigeria trying to make concrete production more sustainable and. reduce the suits remissions during the process and they've made an outstanding discovery took a look. 6.
9:40 pm
africa's building sector is booming the continent uses as much concrete for construction as europe does but making the cement that binds it produces a lot of carbon dioxide up to 10 percent of the world's c o 2 emissions. scientists from germany and nigeria are studying alternatives they're experimenting with remains of local plants such as kosov appeals that have been incinerated at certain temperatures. and are from the ash that we collect we develop cement like products they could be used in place of cement binder sold at local markets that would reduce the c o 2 footprint. ash from rice holes and other plants remnants are also showing promising results using plant based cement is an environmentally friendly alternative. not only can an endless supply of organic
9:41 pm
waste be put to good use this is stable eco concrete is also much cheaper to produce. it may even be more stable and durable than conventional concrete. or course we want. the scientists hope to see the 1st building made from a son of a concrete constructed as early as next year on the university campus. and how about you if you're also doing your bit tell us about it. visit our website or send us a tweet. during your. wish. you know your story.

and once again eco africa highlights just how much we underestimate nature's potential time and again and we can see it again in our next report even if the man that it's about has long recognized the problem will try to live more in line with nature cosmetics and made from natural ingredients becoming more popular be allowed going today from lagos is making on organic so that's found fame for far far beyond nigeria and now he's shipping his naturally made soap around the world. oh. the camp would tree is native to west africa centuries people here have used it for all kinds of purposes from working to making dying and health and beauty products when ground into. the cool beneath the bark is good for treating various skin
