In Vietnam over two million families have piggeries that create a huge odour and waste problem. The Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development (MARD) has partnered with the Netherlands Development Organisation (SNV) to develop a nation wide biogas programme, which is turning Vietnam’s waste problem into a source of clean energy.
This case study from the Ashden Award recognises to MARD and SNV their successful partnership which has enabled the large scale dissemination of domestic biogas technology to improve the quality of life for farmers in Vietnam. Chapters include:
3. Potential for growth and replication
4. Contact details
Esta historia destaca los desafíos de la deforestación y el cambio climático en el sur de Honduras y el impacto que ha tenido un proyecto innovador liderado por SNV Honduras y financiado por CORDAID y DANIDA para reforestar el área con Jatropha (piñón). Los resultados se ven no solamente en la mejora de las tierras previamente degredadas, sino también en la generación de ingresos para pequeños productores y en la reducción de gases de efecto invernadero a través de la producción de biocombustibles.
The Lao Biogas Pilot Programme gives Lao farmers the possibility to purchase a biogas digester. So far a number of 787 digesters have been built since the start of the pilot programme in 2007. Domestic biogas digesters, built under the “Lao Biogas Pilot Programme”, are reducing greenhouse gases from four different sources and can be eligible for carbon financing.
This case study first presents the context of the programme after which it describes the opportunities and barriers (institutional, financial and technical) of developing small bio energy programmes like biogas with a carbon component and the roles that various stakeholders could play in the process in Laos. The study finishes with lessons learned and four key factors are identified as main drivers for a successful development of a carbon project:
This document summarises the systematisation of the project “Sustainable Biofuel Value Chain Development in an Existing African Oil Palm Plantation”, executed by SNV, WWF and HONDUPALMA, from October 2007 to March 2009, in El Negrito, Yoro, Honduras.
The purpose of the systemisation was to analyse the process followed in the design and implementation of the project and to identify the factors and key elements of: i) best agricultural practices (BAP) in production of African oil palm; ii) cleaner production (CP) in oil extraction and production plant; iii) bio-gas recovery project for the Clean Development Mechanism (CDM), in order to replicate and enlarge this experience at national and regional levels so as to share the lessons learnt throughout the process.
This story relates the challenges of deforestation and climate change in Southern Honduras and the impact that an innovate project led by SNV Honduras and financed by CORDAID and DANIDA has achieved in reforesting the area with Jatropha. The project has achieved results not only in improving previously degraded lands, but also through generating income for small holder farmers and contributing to reduced greenhouse gas emissions through producing biofuels.
