Enhancing Capacity for Public Communities in Renewable Energy Producing from Livestock Wastes Adapting Climate Change

Vietnam and other Southeast Asian countries are severely affected by climate change. Development of renewable energy from livestock wastes (production of electricity from biogas) is a solution due to their high proportion of livestock in the economy. The overall objective of this project is to strengthen the capacity for social communities in producing renewable energy from livestock wastes (PREW) to adapt climate change, toward green growth. To achieve the overall objective, the project is designed into three main modules: Module 1: Evaluating social awareness in global change issues and renewable energy production from livestock wastes with adaptation to climate change (including governmental agencies, private companies and communities), identify communication needs and capacity building; Module 2: Organizing training courses about renewable energy from livestock wastes in order to climate change adaptation for the stakeholders (farmers, agencies, researchers, teachers, students…); Module 3: Developing a policy brief and disseminating it to policy – making bodies (at the sectorial and national level) to promote the production of renewable energy from livestock wastes, then organize workshops for informing policy implications to policy makers, academics, universities and other stakeholders. The project is implemented in one years and based on the collaboration among academic/policy maker within Japan, Thailand and Vietnam, of which, Vietnam will be the main site.
