i'm not sure but i think the ugandan programme is run by jp morgan climate
care. i met with them in dakar in september at the african carbon forum and
they are now re-looking at their own policy in terms of taking on board
stove programmes - they are now looking at bundling as it seems that no
matter how "substancial" an individual programme is, on a global scale of
economics its more profitable to install a massive wind or solar farm
somewhere with carbon credits and earn x % fee than selling stoves even if
its in the 10's of thousands.
this is just an assumption i am making - anybody knows more facts please do
george from the jungle
looking for funding to TRAIN the community
and set up manufacturing facilities - i.e capital investment
to be able to SELL stoves on a commercial basis
because yes i do think it can be done

HOW DO WE SET UP A PROGRAM TO CAPTURE THE CO2 CREDITS FOR THESE OR ANY OTHER
ENERGY EFFICIENT STOVE OF THE TYPE DISCUSSED ON THIS LIST? iF THAT WERE
POSSIBLE THROUGH A UNIFORM MECHANISM THEN MANY OF THESE COULD BE SOLD TO END
USERS IN A STRAIGHT BUSINESS FASHION AND NOT NEED TO BE PURCHASED BY AN NGO
AND GIVEN AWAY
