About the Tuki Wasi Program

In November 2021, Microsol signed an agreement with the Swiss institutions Climate Cent Foundation (CCF) and the KliK Foundation to create the first agreement for the purchase of Mitigation Results (ITMO) in the world, under article 6.2 of the Paris Agreement.

Thus, the Tuki Wasi Program was created, which is one of the first ITMO programs for improved cookstoves in the world, and the first ITMO Program in Peru.

The Tuki Wasi Program hopes to install 60,000 improved cookstoves nationwide, which will benefit approximately 300,000 people in vulnerable areas of the country. These will seek to generate between 480,000 and 960,000 tCO2e by the year 2030.
