    Thanks for the good reading materials.

    I picked interest in the last listed additional reading material but it is not opening. How can one get it?

    Also, the link to the material on “climate change” opens a google search page on my computer. I wonder if the problem is on my side or there was an error in the input…

      Íf you go to the side of iPCC you have to click on the tab “Publications and Data” and go to the Fourth Assessment Report. Open the Working Group I Report and then go to Chapter 7. This is the additional material. For me it the link worked so maybe there is some problem from your side.

    So much information available! Thank you. Got special interest in the Flexi Biogas system and how it has been successfully been implement in Kenya (IFAD doc). Since being an inexpensive technology as well portable, I think it should be possible to implement it in other poor rural areas around the world. Wonder if this has been tried in other countries.
