In Indonesia, SNV has joint effort with Hivos (Humanist Institute for Co-operation with Developing Countries) in the Indonesian Domestic Biogas Programme. This is a 3,5 year programme managed and implemented by Hivos with technical assistance from SNV, in cooperation with national and local stakeholders. The programme is funded by the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in Jakarta and was established in close cooperation with the Indonesian Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources.
The overall objective of the programme is to disseminate domestic bio-digesters as a local and sustainable energy source through the development of a commercial, market oriented sector in selected provinces. Within the programme, Hivos provides overall programme management, coordinates with stakeholders and is responsible for planning, monitoring and reporting, technical assistance, knowledge management, policy dialogue, stakeholder mobilisation, advocacy and communication. SNV assumes responsibility for the effective exchange of knowledge generated through its engagement in the set-up and implementation of national programmes in other countries. This relates to organisational and institutional development, planning and implementation of programme activities like promotion, training, quality control, extension, biogas enterprise development, financial services related to the construction companies and end-users, social inclusion and environmental sustainability.
Started in May 2009, the programme aims to build 8.000 units of quality domestic bio-digesters, of which 2.000 units will be outside Java, before the end of 2012, partially subsidised and facilitated with credit. Through its multi-sector approach, the programme will mobilise the private sector, Non-governmental Organisations, cooperatives, Micro Finance Institutes and the government sector, focusing on clusters of high-density livestock areas and aiming at farmers with at least two or three stabled cows.
