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 factsheet contains information on SNV's improved cookstoves around the globe, as well as its partnership in the Global Alliance for Clean Cookstoves, a public private initiative led by the UN Foundation.

Building of a quality bio digester requires good knowledge and skills on the part of the constructor, the mason. Good functioning or performance of a bio digester is associated with the selection of the right size, choosing the right site for construction, selecting the construction materials and appliances to comply with the quality standards, constructing the components with strict adherence to the norms and ensuring effective operation and maintenance activities – most of which are the responsibilities of the mason.
This handbook is designed for the mason, who wants to make a living out of building biogas digesters. For biogas technology to perform well, a guided approach is needed to achieve this; disseminate, build, and sell the technology. We are training masons so that they know how to build a bio-digester and to standardize the bio-digester, so people can use the same sizes criteria.
The objectives of the Training are streamlined in this manual as follows:
This English written brochure describes the domestic biogas programme of Tanzania. It contains general information about Tanzania and Biogas with the history of biogas in Tanzania and the benefits of biogas. It also contains information about SNV’s approach to biogas with an explanation of the multi-stakeholder approach and the chosen digester design. Further it informs readers about the other stakeholders that are involved in the programme. Lastly the brochure provides the current goals of the programme in bullet points.
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.
