This report analyses the contribution of biogas towards SDGs 2 (Zero Hunger), 7 (Affordable and Clean Energy) and 13 (Climate Action). In doing so, it addresses four research questions:
- How can the direct impacts of biogas support the achievement of the SDGs (specifically SDGs 2, 7 and 13)?
- What are the best mechanisms (including but not limited to climate financing, pay-for-success models and other impact monetisation) to expand the use of this technology based on its impact?
- How can this impact be better tracked, measured, and understood?
- How does this impact vary between different market segments?
