Gold Standard Biogas
WWF Nepal had initiated the WWF Nepal Gold Standard Biogas VER Project in 2007, and installed 7,500 biogas plants in the Terai Arc landscape.
The project is generating carbon credits and the revenue generated from the sale of credits goes to local communities to help expand the biogas program. The carbon credits are sold for 13.5 Euros a ton and local communities have earned a revenue of 600,000 USD.
With the success of the biogas program, WWF Nepal is now expanding the program to install 20,000 biogas plants in the coming years
