    Rwanda

    Lake Kivu produces three seperate gasses, including methane. It is hoped that this high gas content can be tapped and provide electricity for most of Rwanda. This would also limit tree killing.

    The gas reserve should be enough to supply the country's electricity needs for 400 years. Using it will mean far less logging since Rwanda currently gets 90 per cent of its energy from wood burning. And tapping the gas will reduce the risk of a massive gas explosion killing people who live near the lake.
