Tuki Wasi organices national and local consultations during the first few days of September

  • Tuki Wasi Project holds public consultation events with key actors at a national and local level.
  • The first local public consultation was held in Huamachuco, with the participation of beneficiaries and local authorities from 4 districts.

Continuing with the activities related to the implementation of the Tuki Wasi Project, Microsol held the national consultation process on 2 September to present the project, its objectives and to receive suggestions, comments and information from stakeholders to improve its implementation.

Close to 30 participants attended the event from different public and private organisations to discuss topics ranging from improved cookstove technologies, the use of firewood and other fuels, improvements to the competitive selection processes of operators, and strategies to ensure sustainability.

Other key issues discussed during the national consultation were: aspects to consider for a successful social intervention, the implementation of social and environmental safeguards and alternatives to strengthen the SDG monitoring plan and the proper channels for community members to share comments and express complaints.

At the local level, the first public consultation was held in the Community Center of Huamachuco, in the Province of Sanchez Carrion, on 6 September. The event was held under the leadership of Inkasol, one of the local operators of the Tuki Wasi project, and was attended by more than 50 people from the districts of Sanagoran, Humachuco, Sartibamba and Curgos; districts where Inkasol plans to install 2500 improved cookstoves between September and December of this year.

The local process began with a reflection on the problems generated by traditional cookstoves, specifically on the potential health risks for children and older adults who live in closed spaces and use traditional stoves for cooking.

Participants were asked to give their opinion on the criteria used to choose the beneficiaries of the project, the construction and building materials used for the improved cookstoves, the technical and social sustainability strategy of the project and the safeguards that should be considered.

As with the national consultation, all attendees’ comments and suggestions were recorded and will be assessed later to determine their inclusion in the project.

The local public consultation was attended by municipal authorities, community leaders, regional representatives of FONCODES and the Vaso de Leche programme. Also in attendance were potential users, community members familiar with improved cookstoves, and even people who have had an improved cookstove from other projects.


Up Next: Local Consultations in Huanuco and Cajamarca

The organisations Cap Social and Sustainability of Forests for Development (SBD for its name in Spanish), also selected during the first selection process of operators, will carry out their local public consultation events in Huanuco and Cajamarca, respectively, in the coming months.


About the Tuki Wasi Project

In November 2020, Peru and Switzerland signed a bilateral agreement under the framework of Article 6 of the Paris Agreement.

This bilateral agreement, the first of its kind, promotes the financing of national projects that implement technologies and practices with low greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, allowing for the transfer of emission reductions between the two countries.

After the two countries reached this agreement, in November 2021, Microsol signed a “Mitigation Outcomes Purchase Agreement” with the Swiss organisations: Climate Cent Foundation (CCF) and the KliK Foundation to implement an improved cookstove project under the Internationally Transferred Mitigation Outcomes (ITMO) scheme.

This created the Tuki Wasi Project, which would be one of the first ITMO improved cookstove projects in the world and the first ITMO project in Peru. The Project expects to install 60,000 improved cookstoves, which will benefit approximately 300,000 people in vulnerable areas of Peru, with the aim of generating between 480,000 and 750,000 tCO2e by 2030.
