"Improvement Cooking Stoves Project in Maputo"
Chamanculo C and Xipamanine are two neighborhoods of Maputo, the capital of Mozambique, which have a high density of population and very critical housing and hygienic conditions due to the lack of basic services. 95% of the population of the districts use cooking stoves with low energy efficiency.
AVSI Foundation is developing the â€œImproved cooking stoves project in Maputoâ€ to promote energy efficiency, conserve natural resources and to improve the living conditions of the poor population who lives in Chamanculo C and Xipamanine.
The project involves the replacement of 15.000 â€œtraditional food stovesâ€ with improved cooking stoves with low environmental impact. By doing so, they spread a safe and responsible use of energy and reduce atmospheric CO2 emissions.
The project has an expected life of 8 years including the first 5 of implementation and 3 years of monitoring activities for the certification and sale of CO2 quotas
