Gyapa Stoves project cuts a record amount of carbon and improves lives
ClimateCare has long advocated integrated Climate and Development projects like this, designed from the outset to protect the environment and improve people’s lives.
Since 2007, nearly half a million Gyapa™ stoves have been sold, impacting over 2.4 million Ghanaians and saving users over $40.6 million in fuel costs.The project has created local jobs and the technology also reduces harmful smoke, improving health for the cooks and household.
Having helped structure finance for the project, we're delighted to see it cutting carbon and having such a positive impact on the lives of local people. It’s exactly the type of result we hoped for when we first wrote the Gold Standard methodology and made it possible to fund projects like this through carbon finance.
