Climate Change Mitigation through biogas installation
In line with the Millennium Development Goals and the fight against Global warming, there is need to create emphasis on worldwide environmental awareness and act on it as well. COHEDA takes pleasure in requesting support for animal/human waste Biogas digesters as an alternative source of fuel in kitchens of schools that are in Arid and Semi Arid (ASAL) areas of Baringo, Koibatek and the South Rift. It is conservatively estimated to prevent the emission of about 700 tonnes of carbon dioxide per year to the atmosphere from desirable fuel switch and avoided deforestation. This will protect the local environment and global atmosphere as a whole curbing the effects of climate change.

Project Characteristics and Results
Emphasis on Sustainable Livelihoods
COHEDA has come up with a biogas technology project in the area that will provide both a sustainable cooking fuel and protect the local environment and global atmosphere as a whole. Village users who will actively be involved in the construction and upkeep of the digesters will also gain on temporary employment and technical trainings. The digesters will use readily available cattle manure and human waste to produce biogas for cooking, and thus save on fuelwood.
Promoting Public Awareness of Global Environment
COHEDA has in the past carried an Environmental awareness and tree planting program in the same area (South Rift) and intends to run another parallel self sponsored tree planting program in line with the Bio-Gas project
