Caption: A WWF project to supply electricity to a remote island in the Sunderbans, a low lying area of the Ganges Delta in Eastern India, that is very vulnerable to sea level rise. Prior to this project the subsistence farmers had no access to electricity. This shot shows villagers with their new solar lanterns. Before installation of the solar panels they had to burn kerosene for lighting.
