The priority problem of this 11-member partner is handling pest attacks that are still carried out with traditional traps and spraying pesticides that are not environmentally friendly and harmful to health. Based on the results of discussions, agreements with partners and funding capacity as well as the duration of program implementation, the solution offered is the manufacture and installation of solar light trap technology.
