1.1 The African Biodigester Component Project

The African Biodigester Component is a five-year project (2021- 2025) funded by the
Netherlands Ministry of Foreign Affairs and managed by the Netherlands Enterprise Agency (RVO) that aims to support the growth and sustainability of a commercial biodigester sector across five countries across sub-saharan Africa. The ABC takes a market-based approach, focusing on developing and strengthening demand, supply, and the enabling environment.
