چکیده:

In developing countries poverty is more prevalent and usually deeper in rural regions than in urban areas. The rural poor depend on natural resources for their subsistence, and their behavior affects a significant portion of those resources. In many developing countries such as Iran, environmental resources are used mainly as inputs in household production or in small-scale production units. Among small-scale ruraltechnology, biogas plants is an alternative yet suitable option to preserve environmental resources from deforestation, land degradation, and desertification. The purpose of this qualitative research is to introduce biogas technology to one of the poor and degraded community in Qezel village of eastern Kermanshah. A four step cyclical action research process was used as a guiding principle to introduce and set up a biogas plant among Qezel rural household. Recommendations are given based on the result of the study.
