Australian aid saves lives: http://www.savethechildren.org.au/aid4change Many villages on Vanuatu’s outer islands are isolated and do not have access to basic services like healthcare. Although under-five child deaths have decreased over the past 10 years in Vanuatu, more children still die in rural areas compared with urban areas.

Using low carbon, clean and efficient power sources remains a challenge for many island communities primarily due to geographical isolation and high start-up costs. A component of IUCN's energy programme in Oceania looks at upgrading existing solar power systems and installing new ones in schools and health clinics on the islands of Santo...
