Emissions Reductions issued for Nigeria CookStoves

CQC is pleased to announce that the CDM Executive Board issued emissions reductions from its Second Verification from its hard won Northern Nigeria project to distribute and construct efficient cookstoves to low income urban and base-of-the-pyramid rural households in Kaduna and Kano States.  This second verification stems from portable metal cookstoves made by Ecozoom, whereas the program has shifted to the rural areas with a new program to install high efficiency mud brick and metal stoves built by artisans in the village communities for women cooks. The first phase of 12,000 stoves is almost complete with 10,000 stoves built as of today.
