Mark Simpson, Managing Director, CO2balance UK Ltd
April has been yet another brilliant month for CO2balance. With over 100,000 VER's issued from our Shimba Hills and Meru improved cook stove projects, the positive impacts are demonstrated by Biasha Suleiman from Muhaka below.
We have received grant funding from the Australian High Commission to assist in creating self sustaining micro businesses in Kisumu to sell improved cook stoves into the community.
In Rwanda we have successfully completed the implementation of 1,800 improved cook stoves in Bugesera District.
Outside of CO2balance the recently unveiled UN climate impact report has sent out a stark reminder to the global community, detailing the most convincing evidence to date on climate change. The call to adapt must be taken onboard globally, as our Uganda Coordinator Andrew points out below 'Climate change to everyone in Uganda is real' and should be seen as an opportunity to change our behaviour to do things properly such as our Uganda borehole rehabilitation programme.
