Access to affordable and reliable sources of energy is crucial to enhancing sustainable livelihoods in the Pacific Island countries, contributing to economic growth and development in remote off grid atolls, here vulnerable communities live. Financing for outer island renewable energy equipment installation, maintenance and the eventual replacement of essential parts, batteries, inverters, etc has to be secured with local leaders. OIKO LOGICA Team held meetings with majors of 10 Atols to define user-pay models via a revolving fund via monthly user-fees. This majors meet once a year! they spend up to 12 hours commuting in ferries and small boats to reach Majuro. They do not have electricity nor telephone connections in their small islands.

There are around 51 small island in the world under severe threat. Maia is one of them. In spite of the amazing beauty, geographical situation and cultural diversity, this small island shares similar economic and sustainable development challenges with sister islands in the Pacific, Indian and Atlantic Oceans. They have very poor availability of resources such as drinking water or energy, a small but rapidly growing population, specially due to traffic of tourist, insularity, vulnerability and remoteness, susceptibility to natural disasters, excessive dependence on international trade for agricultural imports and vulnerability to globalization.
OIKO LOGICAs has been invited by MWH and The Global Climate Change Alliance to identify and formulate a Support Program to the National Strategy for Adaptation to Climate Change in Seychelles.
