    The objective of the NAMA is to design and implement a national programme to promote the use of biogas and develop a market-driven sector.

    Activities: (2016 - 2017)
    The overall aim of the programme is to:

    • create awareness of biogas technology in small holder dairy and piggery farming areas and in rural areas
    • train builders in the construction and installation of digesters as well as loading and maintenance
    • develop and adapt paraffin, LPG refrigerators and other appliances for use with biogas.

    In the domestic sector over 200 digesters have been constructed so far but the aim is to cover all the 57 rural districts in the country. 7 800 domestic digesters are expected in the first ten years.

    The programme also focuses on construction of digesters at public institutions; i.e. schools, prisons, and hospitals. 100 institutional digesters and 100 municipal digesters are expected to be constructed in the next 5 years.
