The Tuki Wasi programme was created to contribute to the mitigation of the increase in temperature global average caused by anthropogenic greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.
Article 6 of the Paris agreement states that participating countries are authorized to negotiate “collaborative approaches” to achieve compliance with its Nationally Determined Contributions (NDC).These negotiations include the use of “Mitigation Results Transferred Internationally” (ITMO), as long as sustainable development, environmental integrity, transparency and governance are promoted.
In this context, Tuki Wasi was created as a pilot project to verify the functionality of an ITMO mechanism of improved cookstoves in Peru (in replace of traditional stoves).
Climate Cent Foundation (CCF) is a voluntary programme created by the business community in Switzerland with the aim of contributing to the protection of the environmente and the climate. The Tuki Wasi programme is funded by the CCF to test and establish an ITMO mechanism between Peru and Switzerland.
Microsol is a social company dedicated to projects that improve the quality of life of people affected by poverty and climate change in rural areas of Latin America. In the frame of the Tuki Wasi programme, Microsol has the role of managing entity and responsible for the operations of the project including the conduction of the Monitoring, Reporting and Verification system of the emission reductions.
The programme has the participation of two field operators: CAPSOCIAL in Huanuco and INKASOL in La Libertad. Both entities implement their projects under a financing scheme based on results. In addition to the installation of the improved kitchens, their activities include monitoring adoption, ensuring the proper use and maintenance of the
This technology improves the combustion process, reducing the consumption of firewood and Carbon emissions, while evacuating toxic fumes out of houses. Thus, it decreases indoor pollution and respiratory illnesses.
An improved cookstove begins to generate multiple benefits the same day it is installed. It reduces a emissions immediately, unlike other types of projects that generate an uncertain impact and/or later in time.
