Announcing Local Stakeholder Consultation in Kahalpur, Banke for 'Improved Cookstoves Programme in Nepal'

September 5, 2021

Consultation to discuss proposed Gold Standard VER project

Renewable World (RW) is pleased to announce that we are planning to hold a local stakeholder consultation meeting to discuss and appraise Renewable World Nepal’s proposed Gold Standard Voluntary Emissions Reduction (VER) project titled “Improved Cookstoves Programme in Nepal by Renewable World”.

RW in collaboration with local partners located in the program areas is planning to implement a project that promotes improved cooking stoves (ICS) targeted to the households using traditional cooking stoves in the remote areas of Lumbini and Karnali provinces of Nepal. Each target household under the project will benefit from better cooking solutions (tier-II and tier-III metallic stoves) displacing traditional cooking stoves. Similarly, the project envisages benefiting household members, specifically women, by reducing exposure to indoor air pollution, reduced health expenses and reduced drudgery and/or expenses towards collection/purchase of firewood. The project is intended to register as a Gold Standard voluntary emission reduction project.

The consultation will be held as follows:

Date: 4 Oct, 2021

Time: 12:30 PM Onwards

Venue: Kohalpur Municipality Meeting Hall, Kohalpur, Banke
