Household Biogas Systems Improve Lives in Nepal

Health and wellbeing in Nepal are being improved thanks to a Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) programme bringing clean-burning cookstoves to households in place of smoky traditional stoves.

The inspiring story of the Nepal Biogas Support Programme was told today with the premiere of video screened for climate change officials taking part in a workshop organized by the United Nations Environment Programme’s Southeast Asia Climate Change Network (SEAN-CC).

The film focuses on the health benefits and improvement to livelihood that the biogas system can bring to rural communities through prevention of smoke-related illnesses and by removing the need to collect firewood for cooking.
