September 2019 – Carbonsink is proud to participate in the “Climate Action and Clean Cooking Co-benefits” scheduled from 9 to 11 September in Washington, an important technical workshop dedicated to new scientific methodologies for monitoring, communication and verification of improved cooking projects stoves.
The workshop is organized by the Clean Cooking Alliance, the international organization that thanks to an important global network of partners is committed to the growth of a sector that makes clean cuisine accessible to families around the world. Founded in 2010, the Alliance hosted by the UN Foundation supports the development, sale, distribution and consistent use of sustainable and efficient cooking solutions that transform life by improving health, protecting the environment, creating jobs and helping consumers save time and money.
There is a strategic opportunity to restore the conversation on climate finance and new efficient cooking methods. With this transition, many countries and project developers are looking for guidance on best practices and methodologies to implement sustainable kitchen projects and programs as a source of market-based climate action.
Investing in projects such as these offers countries measurable solutions not only to mitigate climate change, but also to realize substantial benefits on health and air pollution. 2019 is a crucial year to enrich the conversation on evidence-based methodologies and tools for monitoring and verifying carbon credits generated projects with cooking stoves.
The main purpose of this seminar is to bring together key stakeholders (project developers, technical experts, researchers and climate finance partners) to:
- to disseminate the latest evidence on the relationship between the emissions released by the “stoves” and the impacts on health and the climate;
- identify regulatory, technological and financial obstacles to the effective implementation of clean kitchen projects implemented through climate finance (or with other results-based funding mechanisms;
- identify solutions to address the obstacles identified based on the lessons learned from the project developers and the most up-to-date science on emissions, technology, measurement and politics.
Carbonsink is proud to participate in the seminar and to take an active part in the discussion table with Ulla Mauno, an experienced Climate Project Manager at Carbonsink.
An important moment of network dedicated to a theme that Carbonsink is very keen on, since its creation it has in fact worked on the implementation and development of projects related to efficient cooking plans, certain that mitigation projects such as these are to be considered innovative solutions and effective able to achieve sustainability objectives by concretely contributing to improving the living conditions of local communities, guaranteeing social, economic and environmental benefits on a global scale.
