Invitation to the Local Stakeholder Consultation for the Project Gaia Cookstove Programme of Activities - Ethiopia (CPA 001)
25 May 2015
Project Gaia Inc., an NGO based in the United States of America and which focuses on the distribution of energy efficient cookstoves powered by ethanol from renewable sources, is developing a Cookstove Programme of Activities (PoA). The programme is seeking to be registered under both the Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) and the Gold Standard. The first project under this programme will be implemented in Ethiopia. The project will result in the reduction of greenhouse gases through the displacement of kerosene, charcoal and firewood used for cooking. In addition to this, the project will also result in a number of sustainable benefits including reduction of deforestation and desertification, reduction of indoor air pollution, reduction of fuel costs, reduced healthcare costs from improved indoor air conditions and better environmental sanitation.
It is in this regard that, Carbon Africa, on behalf of Project Gaia Inc. have the pleasure of inviting you to participate in the coming Local Stakeholder Consultation for the project scheduled to take place on the 25th June 2015 at Friendship International Hotel Addis Ababa Ethiopia from 9:00 am to 4:30 pm.
The purpose of the meeting is to discuss the project design and its impact on the sustainable development in Ethiopia and getting your valued feedback on ways of improving its implementation. Please find attached a non technical summary of the project at:
