Uganda leads the way in opening up carbon finance for suppliers of improved cook stoves in Africa

Dec 2012.
Across Africa it just got a lot easier for organisations that supply improved cook stoves to earn carbon finance that will boost their activities.
The Uganda Carbon Bureau now has a registered umbrella programme (as from 17 August 2012) called Improved Cook Stoves for East Africa (ICSEA) that can help any eligible stove supplier to earn carbon credits under the UN’s Clean Development Mechanism (CDM).
It already covers Uganda, Kenya, Rwanda and Burundi, and is quickly being extended to South Africa and Lesotho. The umbrella programme is ‘stove neutral’ and any eligible stove suppliers from a participating country can join. They will receive support for their stove enterprise from the ICSEA Stove Support Facility, and benefit from a quick and affordable way of earning carbon credits. For more information click here.
