The aim of this project was to strengthen the existing Bio-Briquette Producer Groups so as to support this form of alternative energy. It is believed that the increased use of Bio-Briquettes acts as a form of climate change mitigation. IDS Nepal also formed Bio-Briquette Collection and Distribution Centres during this project, and created an Awareness-Raising and Marketing Campaign for Alternative Energy Implementation and Black Carbon Mitigation.
