Project impacts and benefits:

The improved cookstoves distributed in the framework of the Qori Q’oncha programme are equipped with a chimney to ensure smoke is vented outside of the house. These stoves are more efficient and therefore reduce CO2 emissions and deforestation.

Improved cookstoves are also great tools for women empowerment, allowing them to cook more quickly, but also to reduce the chore of wood and freeing up time for the education of children.

 

Here are some results of the programme:

Enabled 141,407 families to gain access to these technologies.

Reduced carbon emissions by nearly two million tonnes of CO2

Reduced an average of 1.9 tonnes in wood consumption, which corresponds to reducing wood consumption by 39% (in Peru).

Saved up to $39 a month in fuel expenditure, or six hours time for wood collection.

A drastic reduction in smoke exposure in 100% of families thanks to the installation of a chimney.

A satisfactory rate of 99% for these technologies
