Sustainable energy project reduces logging

To reduce local reliance on logging for fuel wood, FREELAND is helping Kok Sa-ard Village, just north of Khao Yai National Park, build a biogas unit.

This pilot community outreach project demonstrates the economic and environmental benefits of switching to more sustainable energy sources.

Using only manure and water, the biogas unit will provide villagers with a cheap, sustainable energy source for cooking and light. It will help villagers save money on petrol and also prevent deforestation. FREELAND hopes the switch to biogas energy can be replicated in other villages around Khao Yai.

This pilot project was made possible with support from the Blue Moon Fund and other FREELAND donors.
