Invitation: Presentation of Improved Cooking Stoves (ICS) Project in Myanmar - 23 May 2013

Core CarbonX Sols Pvt Ltd is developing a project to replace the traditional three stone/mud stoves with the introduction of Improved Cooking Stoves (ICS) in the Republic of the Union of Myanmar under the Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) ( ).

The project will reduce the use of non-renewable biomass thus reducing deforestation associated with firewood use. By reducing firewood consumption for cooking purpose, the project activity reduces green house gas emissions stemming from the use of non-renewable biomass. The project activity will also contribute considerably to user’s economic sustainability through the more efficient use of firewood. Energy savings at both individual house and national levels make vital contributions to their economic competence.

With its vast experience in the development of improved cook stove CDM project in South Africa, the project developer now aims to distribute ICS in one million households of the Republic of the Union of Myanmar.

The project seeks to claim carbon credits from the displacement of fossil fuel that would be used for meeting similar thermal energy needs. The project will be registered as a Programme of Activities (PoA) with the Gold Standard Scheme to get the carbon credits. The income generated from the sale of these carbon credits will be used as funding revenue to subsidize the purchase of the ICS.

The Gold Standard scheme sets high demands on the involvement of stakeholders into the project development process with local stakeholder meeting. Core CarbonX is organizing this meeting in the framework of Gold Standard Scheme. In this meeting, project will be introduced to the participants and assessment will be held.

Agenda of the meeting is as follows:
• Opening of the meeting
• Explanation of the project
• Questions for clarification about project explanation
• Blind sustainable development exercise
• Discussion on monitoring sustainable development
• Closure of the meeting

We hope that the meeting will be a useful consultation exercise for us and all stakeholders attending. The output of the stakeholder’s meeting will provide a positive contribution towards the development of the PoA.

We will be honored for your participation in the meeting on 23rd May 2013 at 3:00 PM at Hotel Sedona, Yangon, the Republic of the Union of Myanmar. Please confirm your attendance to the below mentioned email before 22nd May 2013. In case, you will not be able to attend the meeting, please write us your comments to

We hope to realize this environmental sound and climate friendly project with your help and income of Certified Emission Reductions (CERs) under the Gold Standard Scheme.
