Production and utilization of 200,000 improved cooking stoves for saving about 450,000 tons of wood and 419,000 tons of charcoal to avoid over 9 million tons of GHG emissions by 2030 compare to the BAU.
Activities: (2012 - 2030)
The programme will train four people to produce improved cooking stoves, and subsidise their costs by $7 per unit in order to popularise their update and distribution. Information leaflets, and television and radio programmes will increase public awareness on the stoves.
Impact and MRV
|Cumulative GHG reductions: 9.07 MtCO2e|
Major emissions reductions achieved through popularizing the use of improved cooking stoves, saving up to 100,000 TOE fuel wood by 2030. The cumulative saving for wood and charcoal for the urban households will be around 850,000 TOE."Major emissions reductions achieved through popularizing the use of improved cooking stoves, saving up to 100,000 TOE fuel wood by 2030.
