Collaboration with National Partners is essential for the success of the project.
Working together with these national partners is important as they form the main channels to conduct field activities and to the facilitate ownership and success of the exit strategy. OFVI will closely work with the governments at activity level.

The following National Partners are involved:

  • Kenya – ABPL
  • Uganda – BSUL
  • Burkina-Faso – PNB
  • Mali – SNV
  • Niger – SNV

Kenya – ABPL

Africa Bioenergy Programs Limited (ABPL) is a social enterprise charged with carrying on the vision of creating a commercially viable domestic biogas sector and boost household’s access to and utilization of green energy and organic fertiliser for their farm.
ABPL to date has realized 23,698 biodigesters installed across the country. The organization aims to support adoption of more installations, to enable scaled access to
affordable clean energy for domestic use and bio-slurry fertilizer for increased agricultural productivity and soil amendment. They help farm extension services delivered by qualified bio-slurry extension service providers tailored to the unique needs of every farmer across the country. They offer support in establishment of a biogas marketing hub/user groups within their operational structures, where members in addition to other benefits, can reliably access biodigester construction/installation/support services.

Uganda – BSUL

Biogas Solutions Uganda Limited (BSUL) is a social enterprise with the vision of a commercially viable, inclusive and market-oriented bio-digester sector in Uganda. Their mission is to nurture and develop a successful private sector led biogas industry. BSUL is strategically building the capacity of the Ugandan private sector to improve livelihoods through sustainable, climate smart interventions with biogas technology in compliance with the Gold Standard to qualify all biogas plants for carbon offset credits. Through their nationwide networks, partnerships and mandates we are improving uptake and adoption of biogas systems to address the need for clean energy, improved agricultural yield, climate change mitigation, youth unemployment, improved sanitation and hygiene, women empowerment and food security. BSUL efforts to produce high quality organic fertiliser in Uganda with bio-digester technology addresses food security, agricultural sustainability, deforestation and climate change which are key challenges for the future well-being of Uganda, its growing population and particularly poor rural communities.

Burkina Faso – BNP

The National Biodigester Programme of Burkina Faso is the institutional actor for the promotion and development of the biodigester technology sector in Burkina Faso. For a decade, the programme has implemented and achieved excellent results in the field of agricultural extension. These 10 years have allowed the development of proven tools and strategies in the field of biodigester organic fertiliser valorisation. Local expertise is available to ensure the sustainability of actions in the sector.

Mali – SNV

In 1979, SNV started its interventions in Mali and has become active in five regions: Bamako, Sikasso, Gao, Segou and Mopti. SNV’s objective is to support local actors strengthening their performance to effectively achieve poverty reduction and good governance. The approach intertwines policy and practice; it builds partnerships between local, regional and national organisations. The sector focus is on agriculture, energy, and water, sanitation & hygiene (WASH), see for more information.

Niger – SNV

Since 1978, SNV has been providing capacity development services to local institutions and organisations in Niger, working in line with national poverty reduction strategies. Operating from two offices (Niamey and Tahoua), SNV aims to strengthen the capacity of local communities, businesses and organisations to become self-reliant, more effective and contribute to the reduction of extreme poverty and good governance. The sector focus is on agriculture/livestock, energy and water, sanitation and hygiene, three global challenges that strongly influence the opportunities of the poor and are closely linked to climate change, see for more information.
