More information on Wikipedia

Rapid economic development and relatively high density of population creates on natural resources of Sri Lanka. Wood, charcoal and fossil fuels currently represent main source of energy for the most of households in Sri Lanka. This has grave consequences on environment such as deforestation, soil degradation and loss of biodiversity as well as contributes to climate change.

People in Need therefore focuses on promoting alternative sources of affordable and clean energy that would be optimal for tropical climate and would suit financial possibilities of low-income population. Domestic biogas systems offer precisely such source of renewable energy. Moreover, its byproduct represents a costless alternative to chemical fertilizers and pesticides and does not degrade soils.
