EU Funding Assistance for LED Projects in Kiribati

The Director of the Commonwealth Local Government Forum Pacific, Karibaiti Taoaba, who is based in Suva, Fiji, has advised that the EU has provided the second tranche of funds to allow three LED projects in Kirbati to commence. The money will be used for LED projects for three nearby Councils of Betio Town Council, (BTC), Teinainano Urban Council (TUC) and Eutan Tarawa Council (ETC). BTC will start the ‘Pig Meats’ project, to slaughter local pigs and sell as pork and other bi-products; TUC has yet to decide on its project, while ETC will start a Chicken Farm.
The LED projects first started in 2105, but were made pending when the EU undertook an evaluation of the project in 2016. About €5,000 is earmarked for each of the three LED projects.
