New myclimate carbon offset project in Kenya

Locally produced efficient stoves reduce wood consumption in Kenya and help to preserve the unique vegetation and biodiversity of Kakamega rainforest. The stoves have a cleaner burning process and thus decrease indoor air pollution and associated acute respiratory infections in women and children. Moreover, savings in burning unsustainably harvested fuel wood cut down CO₂ emissions. The project plans to distribute 62,000 efficient cook stoves to rural households in communities adjacent to Kakamega Forest in Western Kenya and thus save up to 240,000 tonnes of CO₂-equivalents in the next seven years.
