Helping women gain access to and invest in technologies which address priority concerns, improves incomes, and reduces greenhouse gas emissions can be powerful. For example, in a project undertaken in the Mekong region, a revolving fund was set up so that Vietnamese women farmers, traditionally responsible for taking care of household livestock (and their waste), could afford to purchase biogas digesters, which safely treat manure and capture ‘clean’ biogas energy to power the family stove and, for some, provide new income streams such as chicken hatcheries.
