The objective of the International Workshop is to exchange a maximum of knowledge and experience between practitioners, experts and policy makers on the dissemination of domestic biogas plants.
(The language of the workshop will be English, and no translation facilities will be made available.)
"SNV is dedicated to a society in which all people enjoy the freedom to pursue their own sustainable development. We contribute to this by strengthening the capacity of local organisations."
The dissemination of domestic biogas plants around the world is sharply rising, both in terms of numbers as well as geographic coverage. More than 35 million units have been installed by the end of 2008, most of them in China and India, providing about 175 million people access to their multiple benefits. Equally important is that more and more countries have embarked on market-based national programmes on domestic biogas, not only in Asia but also in Africa, and have started to develop a sustainable biogas sector. To efficiently and effectively utilise both public and private resources and to prevent unnecessary failures, it is paramount to broker knowledge and experiences between the various parties involved. In this respect, SNV Netherlands Development Organisation is organising an International Workshop on Domestic Biogas.
The International Workshop will be organised and funded by the SNV Netherlands
