Stay tuned! New UNDP-Discovery Channel documentary 'One Simple Solution'
Flip a switch, plug in a cord, push a button...the power of electricity is a given in the modern world, but for 1.3 billion of the Earth's people, energy production infrastructure is not available for heating, cooking or even lighting one's way. Yet, in some of the poorest and most remote areas of Asia, innovative solutions are powering local communities and changing people's lives. UNDP's 'Inside Out: One Simple Solution' travels to Nepal, India and the Philippines to uncover the amazing and simple solutions that are being found to solve one of the world's toughest problems, energy poverty. Watch how a simple solution brought energy and big changes to mountain communities in Nepal!
Discovery Asia's 'Inside Out' is an episodic series that dives into complex and thought-provoking topics. For 'One Simple Solution,' UNDP and Arrowhead Films trudges through the mountains, the slums and the mud to capture the human effects of lack of productive energy and the inspiring stories of innovation that are solving it. UNDP is proud to co-produce another documentary on local solutions for global challenges for Discovery Asia. The documentary will be premiered on Discovery Asia on World Environment Day, 5 June 2013.
