Zambia lands €4.7m energy for agriculture project

Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (SIDA) has given Netherlands Development Organisation (SNV) €4.7 million to implement the energy-for-agriculture (E4A) project in Zambia aimed at installation of bio-digesters to enable rural households and smallholder farmers have increased access to renewable energy. In an interview on Tuesday, E4A project manager Prakash Ghimire said the aim of the programme is to develop viable markets for biogas in Zambia that will lead to improved livelihoods for smallholder farmers through increased savings on fuel and income generation from the productive use of biogas and bio-slurry. “It will build capacity in the public and private sectors to construct and operate 3,375 bio digesters across the country by the end of 2018,” he said. The initial work is intended to establish the capacity that will enable Zambia to continue to run a large-scale biogas programme even after the E4A project is completed. Mr Ghimire said the project is being implemented countrywide but focusing on areas where there is sufficient cattle farming since bio-digesters convert animal dung and various organic materials into combustible gas.
