Timor-Leste – Improved Cookstoves

Full project name: Timor-Leste Improved Cookstoves Project

Location: Municipalities of Aileu, Dili, Ermera, Likisa, and Manatuto – Timor-Leste

Impact on region/communities:

The key objectives of the project are to reduce fuel usage (switching to renewable biomass) and minimise carbon dioxide emissions and indoor pollution associated with inefficient cooking practices. It will transform rural household cooking systems in Timor-Leste and move toward a more efficient, effective, and healthier system. Additionally, the stoves will benefit the community through fewer and easier cooking hours, reduced exposure to smoke and associated health problems and less time collecting firewood.

Carbon standard/verification: Verified Carbon Standard (VCS)

Size/scale: 200,000 improved cookstoves

CO2e to be avoided: 5,000,000 (tCO2e total)

Timescale: 7 years
