Project goal: Saving wood used for cooking, less air pollution
Project size: Installation of 30,000 efficient stoves per year
Cost of building stoves:1.8 million euros ($2.43 million)
CO2 savings: a planned 7 million tons in the next seven years
Traditionally, people in the rural regions of Peru cook over an open fire at home. It's not only bad for the climate, it's also bad for the population's health. New types of wood-burning stoves can reduce the amount of wood consumed by up to 80 percent. That prevents deforestation, and saves thousands of tons of CO2 emissions.
