Region: Latin America
Project type: Household devices
In Mexico, approximately a quarter of the population use firewood for cooking. Firewood is the main energy source for approximately 80% of rural households, and the majority of households still use open fires which are inefficient in regards to fuel usage. By adopting the higher efficiency cookstove, households reduce the quantity of fuel wood they must consume for daily cooking needs. Since a high proportion of fuel wood comes from non-renewable sources, the project reduces the emissions that occur from the non-renewable extraction of wood.
In addition to delivering emissions reductions to help take urgent action to combat climate change (SDG 13), the project delivers a number of other sustainable development benefits. These include:
