This year we have funded a project to help people in the Vietnamese countryside provide themselves with clean, affordable energy. Replacing traditional cooking fires with biogas uses a readily available natural resource to decrease deforestation and improve peoples’ health, as they no longer breath in fumes from smoky fires. In addition, the time saved collecting wood combines with the organic fertilizer by-product of the process to make farming more profitable, helping to lift people out of poverty.
The project contributes to 10 SDGs. Details of how each is impacted, along with more information, including a short video, is available on the My Climate website: Transforming waste into biogas in Vietnam (myclimate.org)
