Climate Change Mitigation Through Cooking For Conservation
The project aims to reduce the amount of fuel wood used by households and at schools in three settlement areas that border the Mt. Kenya Forest through the introduction of energy-efficient stoves. This will reduce the strain on the forest and provide an alternative source of income as the project participants will also be able to access carbon credit markets through their use of the energy efficient stoves, tree nursery enterprises, and tree planting activities.
Kangaita Cooking for Conservation Initiative
Area Of Work:
Climate Change Mitigation
Project Characteristics and Results
The project targets six women's self help groups which have combined to form the Kangaita Cooking for Conservation Initiative.
The project will become sustainable through the income generated through the sale of carbon credits, income which will be partially reinvested in the project. Through the use of energy efficient stoves, the project will reduce the amount of fuel wood used in cooking, thus creating a situation where fuel wood is used sustainably. A sustainable source of alternative income will also be generated from carbon credits for use of these stoves and the trees grown in the groups' tree nurseries.
