Meru Improved Cook Stoves(ID: 103000000001954)

Account Holder
This project will introduce energy efficient cook stoves into the Meru area and will reduce fuel use and associated greenhouse gas emissions by end users. Other benefits will include contributions to local sustainable development issues such as deforestation and illnesses caused by smoke inhalation. This is in line with the stated aims of the GS The villages in Meru face all the problems of peri urban and rural areas all over Africa. The distribution of improved cook stoves will result in greenhouse gas emissions reductions by reducing the combustion of non-renewable biomass. It is estimated that each improved stove distributed will reduce greenhouse gas emissions by approximately 3 tonnes CO2 per year. These bemission reductions are expected at least for an initial stove life span of 7 years, extendable up to 21 years in total. As the stoves are being distributed at no charge, without the finance provided by the project developers, it would not be possible
