Among the partners supporting Nepal’s renewable biogas program are two World Bank-administered programs, the Global Partnership on Output-Based Aid (GPOBA) and the Community Development Carbon Fund (CDCF). GPOBA has provided a US$5 million grant to help scale up the program by subsidizing the installation of up to 37,000 new biogas plants in 48 remote districts. The CDCF is purchasing carbon emissions reductions from previously constructed plants. This program is unique in combining two results-based mechanisms, output-based aid and carbon finance. You can find out more on the GPOBA webpage on this project: http://www.gpoba.org/gpoba/node/219.
