The United Nations Environment Programme (Unep) is trying to identify the best sites for wind and solar energy in 13 developing countries. It believes the scheme will prove renewable energy sources have far more potential than supposed. Unep hopes its findings will encourage investors to finance green energy schemes.

It says the project will help both to tackle climate change and to relieve poverty. The countries where the surveys are to be carried out are Bangladesh, Brazil, China, Cuba, El Salvador, Ethiopia, Ghana, Guatemala, Honduras, Kenya, Nepal, Nicaragua and Sri Lanka.
