The launch of the capacity building partnership in Nigeria kicked off with its inaugural session. It provided a comprehensive overview of the evolution, trends, opportunities, and challenges within the country's decentralized renewable energy sector.
RedBioLAC is the Latin American network involved in applied research and dissemination of anaerobic bio-digestion. One recently started activity is to organize targeted exchanges. Experts with extensive knowledge in the field of biodigesters provide their colleagues, who are developing biodigester programs in other countries, with hands-on training, transfer of technology and business model strategizing.
WISIONS is supporting this practice, and it is a complementation to online RedBioLAC discussions and the annual conference (find out more about the next conference on this page shortly).
One exchange is between Bolivia and Ecuador. In 2009, 14 biodigesters have been constructed in Ecuador with support from the Green Empowerment initiative funded by WISIONS. The quality of installations varies, though, and ongoing monitoring and maintenance is required. Thus a RedBioLAC member and expert from Bolivia is proposed to support the project in Ecuador.
