Abstract


Blue Ventures, a UK based marine conservation charity and a not for profit expedition organisation, has this year established a carbon offset programme in Madagascar as Blue Ventures Carbon Offset (BVCO). The first of BVCO’s projects are subsidising and distributing energy efficient stoves in partnership with the Association pour le Développement de l’Energie Solaire Suisse-Madagascar (ADES). Both solar-powered and energy efficient stoves are being used to help communities reduce their wood and charcoal fuel use, thus: helping to reduce deforestation; reduce smoke related illnesses; improve cooking safety; reduce CO2 emissions and reduce monetary and time costs related to cooking fuel use for households.
