Rwanda: Biogas Recommended for Environmental Protection

Environment is important for living creatures to live including man, and when it's not protected, the consequences become fatal to people and property.

That is why the world celebrates World Environment Day on June 5th every year and this year's theme goes "economy conserves the environment, be part of it."

Residents are asked to take part in protecting the environment starting from where he lives to the national level and international level.

In order to protect forests in Nyabihu district, Biogas was introduced and is being used by residents in cooking.

Doris Melchiade in charge of infrastructure in Nyabihu asserts that from July 2011 to June 2012, 28 out of 30 biogas systems have been built in Nyabihu district adding on ones already available ones.

Biogases are built for the residents who meet the required qualifications in order to protect forests and teach others the good culture of using biogas.

Apart from biogas use, other measures were taken like reafforestation, protecting rivers and lakes, making water holes to fight erosion, planting trees with crops.

As a way of preventing effects of not protecting the environment like desert formation, drought, floods, heavy winds, earth quakes, and other disasters, every citizen is asked to start protecting the environment in the area of residence.
