|Samenvatting||This report presents the findings and recommendations of a study to assess the feasibility of biogas in the island of Sumba, NTT province, Indonesia. The report is prepared based on the meetings with government officials, meetings with households and field|
observations which were carried out in the second week of February 2011. A small market for biogas seems feasible in Sumba; however, there are many challenges and limiting factors as well. There are sufficient cattle in Sumba but the availability of dung in the yards is rather limited. This is due to the cattle rearing practices prevailing in Sumba. The local Government seems interested in promoting biogas as a sustainable technology.
