On September 27, 2011, PCIA hosted the second of a series of PCIA and Gold Standard Foundation webinars on Carbon Financing in an effort to increase the number of cookstove projects in the CDM, GS and voluntary carbon markets.
The Gold Standard Foundation’s Deputy Technical Director, Abhishek Goyal, discussed the fundamentals of their 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.
