In the October issue of Geographical we tackle the troubling issue of electricity access in Sub-Saharan Africa. The region has the worst statistics in the world, by a huge margin, a fact that touches every facet of people’s lives. Tommy Trenchard joins a research expedition to the Saya de Malha Bank in the Indian Ocean, searching for marine life; and we explore the issue of freshwater availability in Bengalaru, India’s otherwise thriving tech hub. Plus, marine biologist Frauke Bagusche reveals the wondrous and vital world of plankton, while carnivorous plant expert Mateusz Wrazidlo fulfils a lifelong ambition by ascending South America’s Mount Roraima.
