Cow dung is changing people's lives in Rwanda by providing renewable and affordable fuel for cooking.

That's according to the UN's International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD).

It's working with the Rwandan government to promote the use of clean renewable energy in the country.

A new African invention, which uses local materials to create cheap, portable and simple biogas digesters, turns the dung into gas for cooking, as Sam Cole reports.
