Project description:

The Efficient Institutional Cook Stoves project aims to reduce the amount of non-renewable wood being utilised for the preparation of meals in schools. This will be achieved using the following two approaches. The stoves to be introduced are of higher cooking efficiency and the fuel wood consumption per gram of food cooked is lower compared with current stoves. Use of dry fuel wood, which burns more efficiently with less smoke, through construction of cooking sheds.

The catalog of carbon offset projects has been developed to highlight projects on the market at the time of publication. Inclusion in the catalog does not imply an endorsement from the Alliance or its partners, and the catalog represents only a portion of the total number of projects implemented or cookstoves adopted globally.
