Another Giant Leap

Can emerging economies across Asia and Africa lift hundreds of millions of people out of poverty in the next few decades without condemning the world to environmental destruction?

The Story

Presenter Ndoni Khanyile travels around the world to see if green alternatives to development exist. She visits farmers in Burkina Faso who are embracing agroecology as a means of feeding the most vulnerable, and visits villagers in Uttar Pradesh in India, who are turning to solar microgrids for energy.

Ndoni also meets leading figures such as Kumi Naidoo, the head of Greenpeace International, to talk about what's really at stake for developing nations affected by climate change, and Jairam Ramesh, a leading economist, who insists that the environment cannot be sacrificed at the altar of economic growth.

This film asks if climate-change solutions used correctly could be a way to save the planet and redress inequality and poverty at the same time.
