Resilience episode 10 - Solutions made in the Pacific

Episode 10 of the TV magazine "Resilience" is broadcast this Wednesday, October 26, at 7:35 pm on TNTV, in French Polynesia.

Solutions made in the Pacific

In this tenth episode of Resilience, we look at the technical, economic and socio-cultural solutions implemented within the PROTEGE project to support economic sectors and accompany the Oceanian territories in their adaptation to climate change.

In New Caledonia, we met Neofly, a company that suggests to produce animal food based on fly larvae.

In the same sustainable and circular economy approach, a similar project is being developed in Tahiti for chicken breeders.

We went to meet the the poultry industry stakeholders and the researcher at the French Polynesia Department of Agriculture who is developing this alternative to animal meal imported from New Zealand.

In Wallis and Futuna, the pig is the territory's emblematic animal and plays a central role in the custom. Each family has a pen to raise its pigs. The pigs are kept in fixed pens which, with the accumulation of slurry, pollute the water table.

In order to preserve this cultural practice of pig rearing, the PROTEGE project is developing a system of electric barriers that facilitates the installation of rotating pig pens and limits the risks of pollution.
