‘Base of the Pyramid’ Research and Action: Shuan SadreGhazi

UNU-MERIT PhD fellow Shuan SadreGhazi speaks about his mission to promote technology for international development.

Some 4000 children die every day from lack of clean water, 80 per cent of the developing world has no access to electricity, and 1.6 million people die every year while cooking with kerosene: these are the massive problems at the ‘Base of the Pyramid’.

To address these issues, PhD fellow Shuan SadreGhazi is working with the Asian Development Bank, Sasakawa Peace Foundation, and UNDP to apply new technologies to age-old problems. Read his blog post about his recent visit to Japan.
