This is the second in a series of webinars from the Partnership for Clean Indoor Air (PCIA) and GS Foundation, taking place this Autumn as part of their efforts to increase the number of cook stove projects in the CDM, GS and voluntary carbon markets.

A webinar (short for web-based seminar) is a presentation, lecture, workshop or seminar that is transmitted over the web.

In April 2011, the Gold Standard released a new and innovative VER methodology for cookstove projects. The consolidated and integrated methodology builds on existing Gold Standard improved cookstove methodologies, but the scope has been expanded to address greenhouse gas emissions from non-domestic applications, such as water purification technologies. Another objective for this methodology was to tackle some of the difficulties encountered by practitioners in the implementation of cookstove projects and to take into account experience gained to date.

By joining this webinar you will:
Join the webinar to:
  • Learn the fundamentals of this new methodology;
  • Determine whether this methodology is right for your project;
  • Gain practice tips for applying this new methodology to your project;
  • Interact with The Gold Standard Technical Team.
