The goal of the National Biogas Programme for Cameroon is to bring tangible and quantifiable improvements in the quality of life of rural households in Cameroon.
This report presents data about Cameroon related to a domestic biogas programme. The report contains 9 chapters. Chapter 1 introduces the country and the energy sector. Chapter two presents the biogas experience in Cameroon so far at institutional and domestic level. It also elaborates on the lessons learnt. Chapter 3 provides the key elements of a national biogas programme with its goal, objective, policy linkages and national biogas target. The fourth chapter elaborates on the institutional arrangement with a programme approach, advisory and implementation partners, and the roles and responsibilities at central and local levels. Chapter 5 describes the programme implementation activities with an annual programme framework, regional distribution of plants and Transitional Phase (year 1) programmes. Programme components and overall cost make up chapter 6. Salient features, activity and budget headings, source of funding, and income from GHG emission reductions are paragraph headers in this chapter. Chapter 7 presents the subsidy and credit arrangements with lessons learnt from other countries. Chapter 8 shows demonstration phase activities and outcomes with a focus on the design and approach, demonstration phase activities and lessons learnt and recommendations. The last chapter elaborates on the technology and the choice of the digester model. Different designs and models are presented with emphasis on the GGC 2074 model. The chapter ends with a description of the benefits of biogas use.
This poster, developed by SNV and the Ministry of Water and Energy (MINEE), provides an overview of common operation and maintenance problems with biogas plants in Cameroon, their causes and potential solutions. The problems mentioned relate to:
- Biogas production and leakage
- Stove and flames issues
- Slurry in piping system and smell
- Cooking time
The poster also provides an overview on the quantity of feeding materials needed for initial and daily feeding of the biogas digester (in sizes 4m2, 6m2, 8m2 and 10m2), as well as hours of projected appliances usage.

The brochure is a compilation of various case studies illustrating the impact of SNV's work in the life of millions of people in Benin, Burkina Faso, Cameroon, DR Congo, Ethiopia, Ghana, Guinea Bissau, Kenya, Mali, Mozambique, Niger, Rwanda, South Sudan, Tanzania, Uganda, Zambia, Zimbabwe.
It portrays the approaches and methods used by SNV to empower local communities, businesses and organisations to break the cycle of poverty by providing them with the tools, knowledge and connections they need to increase their incomes and gain access to basic services.
SNV West and Central Africa is presenting through the 2011 case study anthology, a selection of its regional interventions. The different cases present the various contexts in which we operate, our approaches and their sustainability, who we work with and our results.
This document sought to analyse our work in the view of getting out the lessons learned from our experiences with regards to what has work and what has not. Besides, the anthology is a tool for knowledge sharing and learning for other organisations or individuals who may wish to scale up the work initiated.
