GS1005 Qori Q'oncha - Improved cookstoves diffusion programme in Peru - PoA(ID: 103000000001925)
The PoA “Qori Q’oncha – Improved Cookstoves Diffusion Programme in Peru”, a MICROSOL initiative, aims to coordinate various actions of cookstoves voluntary diffusion activities in Peru. The activities will be therefore presented through Voluntary Program Activities (VPAs) of improved cookstove diffusion in Peru. The cookstoves diffusion activities will all follow the same framework described in this PoA, description is detailed below. The improved stoves replace three stone or a terra cotta “fogón” constructed with local material by people themselves. The target population are rural and urban beneficiaries. The type of use of the improved cookstoves(ICS) can be domestic, commercial or institutional. The main characteristics of the ICSare that each sold new stove emits less GHGs than the replaced one and has a chimney. The principal benefits of the programme are environmental care, health benefits, carbon incomes and economic savings due to reduce in firewood. Only through the support of myclimate through the voluntary CO2 offsetting mechanism can the project be realized in this size.
