Bangladesh has developed the largest individual solar panel programme in the world. 3.7 million solar cells have already been installed since 2003 on the roofs of houses in rural areas. By 2018, there should be 6 million. NGOs use this development of rural areas to push for women to work in a country that remains very traditional.
