The Africa Biogas Partnership Programme (ABPP) is a Public Private Partnership engagement that is funded by the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs. ABPP is proud to be the first biogas programme that has been able to create sustainable results at scale by partnering with local enterprises, NGOs and governments in sub-Saharan Africa. The Programme supports five national biogas programmes in Africa: Ethiopia, Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda and Burkina Faso. ABPP lead partners are also supporting emerging biogas initiatives in other African countries including Benin, Cameroon, Zimbabwe, Zambia and Mali.
In the five ABPP countries, national biogas programmes are being implemented in partnership between national implementing agencies, Hivos (Humanist Institute for Cooperation with Developing Countries) as the Fund Manager and SNV (Netherlands Development Organization) as the technical assistance provider. In each of the countries, the national implementing partner is tasked with the direct discharge of the programme activities in their respective countries.
By June 2015 more than 51,000 bio-digesters had been constructed in the five ABPP countries, providing a quarter million people with access to sustainable and clean source of energy, home lighting and organic fertiliser.
