Low-carbon yak cheese : transition to biogas in a Himalayan socio-technical niche.

Campbell, B. and Sallis, P. (2013) 'Low-carbon yak cheese : transition to biogas in a Himalayan socio-technical niche.', Interface focus., 3 (1). p. 20120052.


This study looks at how potential for resilient low-carbon solutions can be understood and enhanced in the diverse environmental, economic and socio-political contexts in which actual scenarios of energy needs and diverse development pathways take shape. It discusses socio-technical transition approaches to assist implementation of a biogas digester system. This will replace fuelwood use in the high forests of Central Nepal, where yak cheese production provides livelihood income but is under threat from the Langtang National Park, which is concerned to protect biodiversity. Alternatives for digester design are discussed, and the consultative issues for deliberative processes among stakeholders’ varied agendas raised.
