was invented by rose twine she runs the company that makes them. we have a technology that can reduce more than 90 percent of the tree cracking in uganda because with. buying more than bonds more than a firewood bond it could mean is that if. the volcanic rocks can be used for 2 years an average of comes in virus configurations including large commercial ones like this range at a market in the capital kampala where a 1000 people come to eat every day it's also beneficial for the kooks who use it because the device generates almost no smoke estimates say smoke from traditional stoves contribute to the death of almost $20000.00 people a year in uganda the new stove is also more efficient than conventional designs which others. can cook anything on the stove and save
11:34 pm
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. what are you. insult western uganda at the foot of mount it has provided in your platoon it is for farming families it has trained and employed a number of groups to extract their rocks which i later collected and take into the company premisses. own and use them when a truck comes i get up to $100.00 i only use the money. to pay school fees for my children by them clothes and food life is much better now because people buy these
11:35 pm
rugs we used to grow crops in the stones got in the way of that but now we're lucky enough to have someone pay for them. the reason large 2 of volcanic works at the factory the company builds up to 40 stoves a day our own 17000 have been sold so far each comes with us of books rose 20 sees the device can be used in many regions and countries if we want to have as many people to be coming to pay new us to be able to break exactly what we're doing in various parts of the country we don't want to on that if you again remains here uganda has a population of 14000090 percent could choke point so these are huge potential market for the world the benefits will also be huge and help to stewarded forestation of the african continent and. 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 threats 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 their experts say are old friends climate change and pollution wrecking the lakes eco balance and who are forgot to 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 comic 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 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
11:37 pm
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 metres but the effects of global warming are causing it to shrink as the water level goes down range. 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 the colonies gone. we have younger island right here and last year the pelicans used it to nast this year the water is too
11:38 pm
shallow and fox is of turned up so the pelicans and cormorants are gone. the lake money it's good or 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 eggs is becoming harder and harder. so the population is declining. 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. and now to this week's doing your bit it's about that construction mainstay 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. africa's building sector is booming the continent uses as much concrete for construction as
11:40 pm
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 up local markets that would reduce the c o 2 footprint. ash from rice hulls and other plant remnants are also showing promising results using plant based cement is an environmentally friendly alternative. not only can an endless supply of organic waste be put to good use the sustainable eco concrete is also much cheaper to
11:41 pm
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 concrete constructed as early as next year on the university of la 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

to an emmy b. and company that has long been involved in eco tourism the company was allowed to build in the national park in exchange for employing local residents and sharing profits with the community conservancy tourist numbers are good and the more tourists the more the conservancy benefits the money generated goes towards community projects this year the local conservancy will receive $100000.00 euros that's how namibia is giving people in rural areas an incentive to protect the animals and it's working. there's been a drastic reduction in poaching. recently there was a ceremonial celebration in the park. the fruit of the german development minister was in the country to attend the inauguration of
11:53 pm
a new park station built with german funding. the namibian government wants to upgrade the park and get even more local residents involved. about 6000 people live in the communities surrounding the park which is situated in the poorest region of the country. there's a benefit to put more benefits to those communities and we have. the where we can to get benefit fully and did they can have their own facilities here we built a facility for them we should do more. to the success of the conservation. because you will not be able to succeed if you do not give benefit to the communities who live side by side with these wild animals they need to benefit and ignored in exchange they take care of these animals i don't.
