SECTION A.               PROJECT DESCRIPTION

A. 1.   Project eligibility under the Gold Standard

Region: East Africa: Kenya
Project Type: Improved Cookstove
Methodology: Improved Cook-Stoves and Kitchen Regimes

The Paradigm Kenya Efficient Stoves for Livelihoods and the Environment Project will distribute
approximately 250,000 improved household cooking devices in the first 7 year period of the
project. These devices are eligible for participation in a Voluntary Gold Standard project using the
methodology: Improved Cook-Stoves and Kitchen Regimes.

To ensure that carbon rights accrue to the appropriate parties, end users of the improved stoves
will be asked to fill out a card upon receipt of the stove that explains to each user that in exchange
for a subsidy discount on the cookstove, the rights to the emissions reductions from use of the
stoves accrue to the distributing organization. The Paradigm Project has ERPAs in place with the
first two Implementing Partners in Kenya: World Vision and Food for the Hungry. Paradigm has
signed an exclusive marketing agreement with Blue Source and Goldman Sachs to market the
credits to end users and ensure proper retirement.




A. 2.   Current project status

Provide information on the status of key project cycle stages (financing, equipment
procurement, construction, commissioning) with dates where possible/ relevant.

The project was planned as a project financed entirely by carbon revenues right from the
beginning. Paradigm, the investor, committed to provide carbon finance for project development in
May 2009. The project developers began working to identify and develop the appropriate stove

ii. Non-technical summary

 Summary: The Paradigm Kenya Improved Cookstove Initiative

 Two of the major causes of deforestation in Kenya are wood harvest and charcoal making for
 domestic cooking. In addition to the environmental consequences, many Kenyan women and
 children spend much of their time gathering fuel, instead of putting that time toward more
 productive purposes.

 The Paradigm Project, with Impact Carbon (formerly CEIHD) as lead project developer, is
 initiating a project in Kenya to promote the sale of improved energy-saving wood stoves and
 charcoal stoves. The project will work through local organizations such as World Vision, Food for
 the Hungry (FH), other NGOs and local stove distributors to reach Kenyans with more efficient
 cooking technologies. The project will sell improved household stoves and institutional stoves,
 investing revenues from carbon finance in stove subsidies, social marketing, and the development
 of a robust distribution chain.

 The Kenyan Context

 According to the Kenyan ministry of energy, 89% of rural Kenyans and 7% of urban Kenyans use
 wood for cooking. Charcoal is used by 34% of rural Kenyans and 82% of urban Kenyans. A series
 of cooking assessments undertaken in 2009 in several rural areas of Kenya concluded that the most
 common cooking device in rural areas was a traditional 3 stone fire (a pot perched on three rocks).

 Deforestation is a severe problem in Kenya. National Kenya estimates from the Food and
 Agriculture Organization suggest that 74% of wood harvest in Kenya is not renewable, though




                            Gold Standard Passport version 2.1 July 2009                          4
                    Gold Standard Local Stakeholder Consultation Report




local studies reveal in most areas that almost 100% of wood harvest is not renewable.

Project Activity:

For rural and peri-urban households, the project will provide high-quality, affordable wood stoves
to replace inefficient traditional 3 stone fires. In urban areas with ubiquitous charcoal use, the
project will market high quality charcoal stoves that exceed the fuel savings of the commonly used
charcoal Kenyan Jiko improved stove, and traditional metal charcoal burners.

 Improved wood models have been shown to reduce wood consumption in households by more
than 50 percent and are capable of saving more than half the fuel used previously. The improved
charcoal models can realize 15 percent or more savings over improved Jikos and over 50 percent
savings over traditional metal charcoal burners.

The project will identify the most appropriate improved cookstove models for varying Kenyan
contexts. The project also intends to provide customers with the opportunity to purchase stoves
designed and manufactured by the international NGOs Envirofit and Aprovecho, and stoves made
by local Kenyan manufacturers.

The project will also offer a fuel-saving institutional wood stove, with both domestic and
institutional models.

All stoves will significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions while simultaneously offering co-
benefits to families in the form of relief from high fuel costs and improved health. Specifically the
stoves will:
                        Reduce unsustainable wood harvest and the accompanying deforestation
                        Reduce Indoor Air Pollution from wood and charcoal smoke
                        Diminish the charcoal and fuel wood bill for households, and save fuel
                         collection time for other important activities
                        Contribute to the preservation of wood resources so as to avoid inter-
                         communal conflict over resources

The stoves will be distributed through World Vision, FH, and other Kenyan partners with
relationships and distribution networks that allow the project to ensure carbon subsidies are passed
through to consumers. Carbon finance will further be used to provide extensive support in the form
of free or inexpensive repair or replacement of stoves if they break.

The Role of Carbon Finance:

Carbon finance provides a basis for maintaining a professional commercial relationship between
the user and the disseminators, while also introducing a subsidized and affordable price, a quality
guarantee, and a warranty system.

The quality assurance strategy is a major benefit of carbon finance. It has the potential to introduce
a new set of quality expectations amongst consumers and so shift prevailing practice away from
inefficient cooking, which has extreme environmental and health penalties, to a new mass
prevailing practice involving significantly reduced GHG emissions and healthier kitchens.




                          Gold Standard Passport version 2.1 July 2009                                5
                      Gold Standard Local Stakeholder Consultation Report




  The entire project, and all cookstoves distributed, is financed by investment capital that the project
  seeks to recapture by generating Voluntary Gold Standard carbon credits.

  Partners

  The Paradigm Project is coordinating the project and providing the necessary carbon finance for
  project development and stoves subsidies. Impact Carbon (formerly the Centre for
  Entrepreneurship in International Health and Development – CEIHD) is managing the
  development of the carbon asset. Blue Source is advising on carbon marketing, assisting to broker
  the sales of any emissions reductions produced by the project. World Vision and Food for the
  Hungry are the first two implementing partners in Kenya, and the project is actively recruiting
  more partners. The project will add more implementing partners in its effort to reach more East
  Africans with healthy, efficient cooking technologies.

  The estimated start date of construction (the date the first stoves will be sold) is expected to be
  February 20, 2010.

Please explain how you decided that the above organisations/ individuals are relevant
stakeholders to your project. Also, please discuss how your invitation methods seek to
include a broad range of stakeholders (e.g. gender, age, and ethnicity).

Invitations were issued to all organizations or individuals that could be identified with experience
working in improved cookstoves in Kenya. This included stove manufacturers, and large and small
vendors who sell stoves to end users. In addition, because of concerns that individual stove users
would be underrepresented, FH recruited community members from the rural areas in which it works
to travel to Nairobi for the stakeholder consultation. It was ensured that these community members
represented both genders and diverse ethnic groups. In order to make the stakeholders consultation
more accessible, it was held in Kawangware, a slum in Nairobi, and members of the local
community were invited. Approximately 30 community members attended.

      Invitation to Initial Stakeholder Consultation for Improved Household Cooking Stove
                                         Project in Kenya

  Dear Sir or Madam,

  We invite you to provide input to the design of a project intended to fund the
  dissemination of improved household and institutional cooking stoves by creating and
  selling voluntary emissions reductions which are known also as carbon offsets. This
  project is the result of partnership between World Vision, Food for the Hungry, Paradigm,
  Blue Source, and Impact Carbon.

  This is a voluntary emissions reduction project that will be registered to the Voluntary
  Gold Standard. A brief non-technical description of the project is attached to this
  invitation (if in email format) or can be requested by emailing info@impactcarbon.org
  We are currently beginning the initial stakeholder consultation process, which includes
  both the opportunity to provide written feedback and to join us for a stakeholder meeting.
  Per the Voluntary Gold Standard, we invite all stakeholders, including the general public,
  to provide input to our project design.

         Written feedback can be provided by emailing info@impactcarbon.org with direct
          feedback, or to request a template with which to review the project. Emails received before
          December 15th, 2009 can be included in the formal stakeholder consultation process.
         The meeting will be held at the Hope Centre Church in Kawangware from 10 am to 1 pm
          on Thursday, December 3rd, 2009. It is located on Amboseli Road, off Gitanga Road. Once
          on Amboseli Road, drive straight on for about 200 metres and take a left turn at the first
          bend (off the tarmac road), then straight on to the church.

  Thank you for your consideration of this request. We look forward to receiving your
  comments and/or having the pleasure of meeting you in person on December 3rd.

B. 2.    Description of other consultation methods used

If individuals and/ or entities (e.g. NGOs) are unable to attend the physical meeting, please




                         Gold Standard Passport version 2.1 July 2009                           12
                     Gold Standard Local Stakeholder Consultation Report




 discuss other methods that were used to solicit their feedback/ comments (e.g.
 questionnaires, phone calls, interviews).

 User Assessment Kitchen Surveys

 In order to determine whether the project will adequately meet the needs of cooks and families in
 rural and urban Kenya, extensive consultations of cooks have been performed.

 Stove User Assessment Kitchen Surveys are 48-question surveys that were completed by sampling
 a cross section of cooks in Kenya. The questions seek a range of information including the cook‟s
 current cooking practices, needs, and demographic information. 30 cooks in various communities
 (e.g. Marsabit, Meru, and Nairobi) were sampled in a uniform way by the professional monitoring
 team of FH . Each survey took about an hour to administer. A transcript of the survey can be found
 as Annex 3.

 The survey data was carefully logged and assessed to determine the needs of the communities
 where the surveys were conducted.

 A Local Cookstove Industry Assessment was also conducted in order to assess who in the
 community earns a livelihood from cookstoves and to identify how they can work with the program to
 reach stove users in need of efficient cooking technologies. A copy of this assessment can be
 found as Annex 4.

 In addition, non-technical project descriptions were sent with solicitations for feedback to individuals
 and organizations that could not attend the stakeholder consultation. None were received back.

Comments accompanying Annex 2:

Based on our experience at this stakeholder consultation, we strongly recommend the following:
for projects seeking to solicit feedback from groups of end users of energy efficient products, Gold
Standard guidance should suggest that two stakeholder consultations are held. This is because end
users and NGO/government employees sometimes come from very different social classes. In a
stakeholder consultation with both groups, great care must be taken to prevent the development
professionals from dominating the conversation. When members of lower social classes are asked
for feedback in this context, the dynamic is affected and the quality of feedback is reduced, even
with careful efforts taken to solicit input from all genders, classes, and races.,

Note: Despite repeated requests to fill out an evaluation survey, some participants departed without
completing it.

 Notes from the Stakeholder Meeting December 3, 2009

 Introductions
     - The Paradigm Project
     - Food for the Hungry
     - World Vision

 Project Goals
     - Implementing improved cookstoves, decrease indoor pollution, save mothers and
         children’s lives
     - We have stakeholders who use stoves from Marsabit, Meru, and Nairobi
     - We have stove makers, vendors, local NGOs, Government Officials
     - We are working to identify local stove models in Kenya and Nairobi with Peter Scott who
         is the stove design consultant from Aprovecho and we will test designs in the
         communities, Charles Gitindu is one of the manufacturers who we will be working with,
         Peter Wambugu is another of the manufacturers that we will be working with.
     - Introduce Peter Malomba with ISAK the Improved Stoves Association of Kenya,
         (Chairman of the board).
     - Peter Malomba:
              o There are big benefits of using improved stoves. It started through the help of
                  GTZ, but we continue improving our efficiency
              o We are talking about our health mainly, most of us do not smoke, but most of us
                  brought up in an African hut we started smoking because it was so smoky, I have
                  been “smoking” all my life, WHO 1.5 million people die each year from smoke
                  emissions.
              o African men don’t go into the kitchen because of smoke, but now men can go into
                  the kitchen. Many times children have been burned




                          Gold Standard Passport version 2.1 July 2009                         19
               Gold Standard Local Stakeholder Consultation Report




        o    Money: we found that the three stones use 8 kilos (per day) of firewood, but a
             rocket stove will only use 2.5 kilos of firewood. We complain we are poor yet we
             spend most of our money on firewood. The firewood that we save can save up to
             40 KSh a day for someone. Using 3 stones is not saving money it is using lots of
             money. Improved stoves also save time; it burns faster, maybe 15 or 20 minutes.
             Our wives spend some much time cooking in the kitchen that they don’t have
             enough time to enhance food security.
         o Environmentally, efficient stoves save our trees. Without trees we don’t have rain
             because they cause the rain. It allows us to live longer.
         o Once a project takes off, it creates income generating activities. People who are
             using stoves earn from it. We have created a situation where people are self
             employed.
-   Acknowledged Climate Care (not participating in the project, but attending)
-   Peter Scott, Stove Design Consultant
         o Started designing woodstoves as a solution even though some people don’t think
             it is the problem, they think of wood as old and traditional.
         o There is a revolution in stove design. My goal is to help local manufacturers build
             the best design for Kenya and each community in the project. The project brought
             in people from Nairobi, Meru, and Marsabit. We are finding things like this:
             People don’t like green. The color is very important for the consumer. Women
             want to it. We are testing models and ideas from everywhere for the most
             appropriate design features for Kenya: Stovetec and Envirofit are imported from
             China, and we are looking at those. I work with stoves in Ethiopia and we are also
             looking at the features on those.
         o We have a new revolution in local stoves: can local options be as attractive as the
             Chinese made manufacturers. All the stoves reduce fuelwood consumption and
             boil water quickly. We are working to develop those locally that have the same
             performance as the most efficient Chinese made options. For example, the
             Envirofit insulator is light, durable and floats, this means more efficiency.
         o Wood is neither slow nor smoky. People are interested once they learn that wood
             is just as good they switch. 95% of the energy in charcoal stoves is gone. Wood
             stoves use 30% and 70% is lost. How do we make a stove that people can afford
             and will last?
         o My prototypes are almost ready. We will then field test the stoves.
         o Shep: why is the Ethiopian so cheap?
         o Peter: they use reused metal and the liners are cheap,
         o Peter from ISAK: can I get the dimensions to the stoves? Yes.
-   Priscilla Wanjiru: We are happy to have KIRDI. Introduces Shep Owen – Director, Food
    for the Hungry.
-   Shep Owen:
         o FH is very pleased to be a part of this project. We have heard about the many
             different levels of the benefits of this project to the community. This project will
             promote people spending less money on firewood and less time in collecting and
             cooking. FH is involved and would like to use its influence to increase the scope
             of the project. If many people opt to buy these stoves that we will see many trees
             saved. Water towers are so important here and we will see the benefits.
         o FH is not a manufacturer or a business, but wants to benefit its people. We don’t
             want to do the selling of the stoves ourselves. We want to encourage and include




                      Gold Standard Passport version 2.1 July 2009                             20
                   Gold Standard Local Stakeholder Consultation Report




                local business people. We will work to market and build awareness of these stoves
                into our communities. Income from the sales of the stoves will go towards the
                project and excess income will go back into the communities through perhaps
                forestry and other projects.
            o Q: will the stoves be available to the whole country? Yes that is the goal, but the
                project will start in the communities that FH is working with. We will try to
                include those outside of our communities.
            o Q: What will be done with the stove revenue?
                      Any income in excess of the project costs will be used in the communities
                         to support the current projects that FH is already executing. It will be
                         difficult to give the benefit back to the individuals outside of the
                         community relationships.
    -   Lawrence from Worldvision:
            o WV has over 50 ADPs in Kenya and we support this project and will be piloting
                in 3 ADPs
    -   Matt Evans, Managing Director, Impact Carbon. Impact Carbon works to implement
        improved cook stoves to combat climate change. We work to find ways to fund these
        projects.
            o The project will be focused on efficient household woodstoves with the goal of
                energy saving, healthy, durable, and affordable cookstoves that people like to use.
                We will be working with Professor Kirubi to test stoves and determine appropriate
                performance of stoves. The project will be financed by carbon revenue to
                subsidize the cost of stoves for the poorest communities. It will also be used to
                increase awareness and adoption of the stoves, and to invest in local capacity to
                build stoves. Local vendors will also be supported to reach customers with new
                efficient stove models, the project will use a conservative estimation of the
                greenhouse gas emissions that are reduced.
    -   Q: How will the project be designed to transfer the technology to local manufacturers?
            o We are working with Peter Scott and local stove experts to work with local
                manufacturers to develop local products that last long enough, and save enough
                fuel, to make a carbon project viable. We are investing in engineering to improve
                and develop the local option. Kenya is a success story for some types of improved
                stoves (like the Kenya Ceramic Jiko). Other countries are learning from Kenya, so
                technology transfer goes in all directions.

The Sustainable Development Exercise was conducted, and notes were taken, in an Excel
sheet that was projected on a screen so that stakeholders could see the recording of their
feedback. That Exercise is included below.

In order to capture the highest quality feedback from stove users, Philip Mato, Monitoring and
Evaluation Director at Food for the Hungry went through the sustainability exercise in Swahili,
soliciting feedback only from the stove users and local stove vendors in the room. Those notes,
which were translated back to English, are recorded below:
    - The difference. The stoves must be understood and the difference between the jikos and
         the wood stoves.
    - Kwangari feels like most people will not accept wood stoves because of the smoke that
         would be emitted and it would not be acceptable to their neighbors and their children can
         trip over the wood and fire.

     -   Q: Have the stoves been tested? A: The stoves are being tested right now and the results
         will determine which stoves are used.
     -   Has never tried wood stoves, but the charcoal stoves produce CO that is dangerous for the
         familites, but it seems that the use of firewood from the look of it is much less and it
         should be able to save the environment.
     -   Woman from Marsabit, she feels sorry for people and herself in marsabit, they realized the
         amount of firewood used by the stoves is very little wood and they can cook ugali with
         only 3 pieces of wood. and they normally carry up to 20 kilos for 2-3 days over long
         distances, but that if they can be trained so that they can demonstrate the stoves they can
         definitely help the community there.
     -   Peter ISKA, he wants to make a general comment on the stoves, we need to use dry wood
         because wet wood emits a lot of smoke
     -   70% of Kenyans rely upon livestock for their livelihoods. Emphasizing the need for
         training. Explore Kenya experience, there is a huge importance on proper training to use
         dry wood and such, difference of community and their respective reliance for their
         livelihood like sale of firewood, livestock, etc.
     -   Trees being destroyed is more important than the smoke, and people born before 1990
         grew up with 3 stone fires,
     -   GTZ has been promoting Jikos since 2006, every stove emits smoke, let us not say the
         wrong things and say that there is no smoke, when what we promote as GTZ we say that it
         is reducing smoke by ½, and some statistics say that smoke is a greater killer than Malaria,
         the safety of the stove is much greater than the 3 stone, fixed stoves are promoted by GTZ,
         test the safety of these stoves for the project with the three stone. If you have not finally
         decided to choose that these are the stoves, GTZ would like to help and propose that fixed
         stoves be used because they are cheaper and more safe. We have calculated the emissions
         of the fixed stoves to be about 3-4 tons as opposed to the 3 stone that emits 7 tons of
         carbon.
     -   Most people in Kwangari use charcoal stoves, but if it is tested and proven that the cost is
         cheaper to use wood then many people would convert to wood stoves.

     -   Closing
         Matt Evans: Explanation of process: We will post and distribute the information from this
         meeting, and the impact it has on project design and solicit more feedback. Please leave
         any contact information you can, so we can follow up with you and get more feedback!
         Thanks!




ii. Minutes of other consultations

 One stakeholder consultation was performed in accordance with the Gold Standard Toolkit. To
 assess the appropriateness and sustainability of the primary project activity, other consultations
 were conducted in the form of User Assessment Kitchen Surveys. This was a survey administered
 to collect data from a cross section of potential stove users. The survey is in Annex 3. The data

  collected is available upon request at info@impactcarbon.org. These user assessments were
  performed with over 60 stove users of varying geographical and demographic backgrounds.

  The project intends to include water filtration devices in the future. A User Assessment survey and
  meeting will be held to collect public input for the design of a water filtration program.

iv. Revisit sustainability assessment

  Are you going to revisit the sustainable development assessment?                    Yes          No

  Please note that this is necessary when there are indicators scored
  „negative‟ or if there are stakeholder comments that can‟t be mitigated                           X

  [See Toolkit 2.7]

  Give reasoning behind the decision:

  No indicators were scored as negative in the stakeholder consultation. Three indicators, Quality of
  Employment, Balance of Payments and Investment, and Human and Institutional Capacity were
  given positive scores, provided that local stoves would be included in the project. Local stoves are
  part of the initial project design, therefore indicating a positive score. However, these indicators were
  logged as neutral based on the consensus suggestion at the stakeholder consultation.

  As described above, the project is committed to including local stoves and will provide support to
  local manufacturers to improve the performance and durability of local stoves. Accordingly,
  stakeholders are assured that local stoves will be included in the project, and the indicators Quality
  of Employment, Balance of Payments and Investment, and Human and Institutional Capacity, will
  remain positive.

  The remainder of the scores were communally decided to be positive.

  The project is designed to incorporate feedback continuously in order to maximize the positive
  impact on communities in Kenya. Feedback from this consultation round will not be the only
  opportunity for interested parties to provide feedback. Please contact info@impactcarbon.org with
  any input to the project at any time.




v. Summary of alterations based on comments

  If stakeholder comments have been taken into account and any aspect of the project
  modified, then please discuss that here.

      1. Stakeholders highlighted the importance of educating customers on the benefits of efficient
         cooking and the dangers of indoor air pollution. As a result, the project developers will pay




                             Gold Standard Passport version 2.1 July 2009                               28
                    Gold Standard Local Stakeholder Consultation Report




       specific attention to developing educational tactics and materials. Stakeholder feedback is
       sought on the implementation of customer education tactics.
    2. The emphasis on training in manufacturing and retail expressed by the stakeholders
       indicates the project should be careful to focus on identifying and disseminating best
       practices. The project will share design and manufacturing knowledge in the form of
       trainings at the request of new manufacturers who seek to participate in the project. In
       addition, potential vendors will also be trained in best retail practices for efficient
       cookstoves.

Comments accompanying own sustainable development matrix:

The sustainable development matrix indicates that the project is likely to have a positive effect on all
project indicators. The project developers continue to design the project in a way that makes social
and environmental indicators more positive and reduces any possibility of negative impacts. Since
none of the indicators were viewed to be negative, no mitigation steps are outlined in the matrix.
The sustainable development indicators will be monitored closely as the project develops.

Comments resulting from the stakeholders blind sustainable development matrix:

The stakeholders blind exercise was administered precisely according to the Gold Standard toolkit.
Notes were taken in the development matrix above that was projected on a screen in front of the
audience for maximum transparency. Responses were edited for typographical errors, and for
clarity.

The comments made by the stakeholders regarding the indicators are listed in the table above. No
indicators were scored as negative, but three indicators, Quality of Employment, Balance of
Payments and Investment, and Human and Institutional Capacity were given provisional positive
scores, provided that local stoves be included in the project. As stated above, local stoves are part
of the initial project design, the group agreed that this indicated a positive score.

Helpful suggestions were made regarding monitoring parameters. The following useful parameters
were suggested:
    -    Location of stove use in house
    -    Availability of drinking water in household




Give analysis of difference between own sustainable development matrix and the one
resulting from the blind exercise with stakeholders. Explain how both were consolidated.

Three differences were observed between the own sustainable development matrix and the matrix
from the blind exercise with stakeholders.

    1.    Mitigation measures are suggested, including many for positive indicators, in the blind
         exercise. Many of these measures were not included in the consolidated matrix for the
         following reasons:
              a. Many of the suggested mitigation measures were already built into the project, but
                  were recorded anyway in the blind exercise matrix from the stakeholder
                  consultation in order to completely represent statements made by stakeholders.
              b. Some of the suggested mitigation measures would not mitigate any negative




                           Gold Standard Passport version 2.1 July 2009                             36
                    Gold Standard Local Stakeholder Consultation Report




                impacts, or could cause other negative impacts. Those are noted in the responses
                to stakeholder suggestions.
             c. There were many useful recommendations on how to make the monitored
                sustainability indicators more positive. These were not technically mitigation
                measures. The suggestions were recorded in the Mitigation Measures column,
                though the stakeholders agreed, without objection, that mitigation was not required.
                In order to present the Blind Exercise matrix in a way consistent with the way in
                which stakeholders saw it recorded, those suggestions have not been moved to
                another column. However, they are not included in the final consolidated matrix.

    2. The own sustainable development matrix assumes that stoves made locally in Kenya will be
       included in the project, as detailed in the stakeholder presentation, and in the Non-Technical
       Project Description. Therefore, the final matrix does not contain the qualifier that the project
       will have a positive effect, “if local Kenyan stoves are included.” The local stakeholders
       explicitly stated during the consultation that those indicators were positive if stoves made in
       Kenya were included, and that was recorded in the blind assessment matrix. Because the
       project plans to include stoves made in Kenya, and is being evaluated on that basis, these
       comments were excluded from the consolidated matrix.

    3. New monitoring suggestions were made in the stakeholder consultation that improve the
       monitoring of the project. Monitoring suggestions from the own matrix and the blind exercise
       were combined to create a final set of proposed indicators.

SECTION E.              DISCUSSION ON SUSTAINABILITY MONITORING PLAN

[See Toolkit 2.4.3 and 2.6.1]

Discuss stakeholders’ ideas on monitoring sustainable development indicators. Do people
have ideas on how this could be done in a cost effective way? Are there ways in which
stakeholders can participate in monitoring? Create list of indicators:

Based on stakeholder input, and successful monitoring regimes from other projects, the following
monitoring parameters have been added or modified:

    - Number of people trained (Indicators: Quality of Employment, Human and Institutional
        Capacity, Quantitative Employment and Income Generation)
    - Location of stove in house and type of house in which stoves are used. (Indicator: Air Quality)
    - Increased or decreased incidence of smoke-related problems such as coughing, itchy eyes,
        etc. (Indicator: Air Quality)
    - Availability of drinking water in homes (Indicator: Water Quality)

Many stakeholders present at the meeting will play an active role in project monitoring. Stakeholders
suggested the following elements which are included in the project:
   - Participating NGOs such as Food for the Hungry will monitor the social impacts of the project
       using their own Monitoring and Evaluation staff.
   - Kenyan manufacturers will be asked to participate in survey-related monitoring so that they
       receive direct feedback from their customers.
   - Stove users will be carefully surveyed regarding their experience with stoves.
   - Survey teams will work with local community leaders to identify appropriate survey
       participants and survey techniques.

                        FEEDBACK ROUND



The Stakeholder Consultation Report, with the Non-Technical Project Description, and the GS
Passport (when available) and Project Design Document (when Available) will be posted at
www.impactcarbon.org, and www.theparadigmproject.com. All participants who provided email
addresses will be asked to review the report and submit additional comments. Because many
project participants, particularly those representing cooks and stove users, may not have access to
the internet, these documents will be printed and made available through local NGO partners such
as Food for the Hungry and Worldvision. The Stakeholder Feedback Round will conclude on the day
the Passport and Project Design Document are submitted. To ensure inclusion, please provide
feedback for this round before March 10, 2010.

In addition, the project will continue to survey prospective stove customers and enquire whether
there are additional parameters that should be monitored.

Annex 3. Stove User Assessment Kitchen Survey

Paradigm – Impact Carbon Stove User Assessment Kitchen Survey
Suggested Survey Techniques:

1.   Subject Selection

       a.   Use standardized methods for household selection randomization: Select and
            interview the family member most familiar with the household's cooking
            patterns.

2. Introduction
        a. Provide introduction to participants and ask permission to conduct survey.
        Example:

"Good morning/afternoon, my name is ………………………….                        . I am here on behalf of
FH/Kenya. FH/Kenya is an organization dedicated to improving the lives of individuals
through innovative technologies. I am happy that you have made time for us. We are here
today to talk to you about a stove project that FH/Kenya is planning to implement in your
community. If you would like to participate in the survey, we will ask you some questions
about your household energy practices and fuels. This survey will take about 30 minutes.
By participating in this survey, you will help to improve the design of this project. All the
information we collect will be kept private. Your name will not appear anywhere. Any
other facts that might point to you will not appear in the report on this survey. "

      ASK: "Do you agree to participate?      1. Yes    2. No → If No, terminate the
      interview."

If yes, ask if they are also willing to participate in future Focus Group Discussions and
Home Trials:

“We are also planning to hold Focus Group Discussions and Home Trials to test user
perceptions of different improved stove models. The Focus Group Discussion involves
observing initial stove perception and preferences. The Home Trials will involve loaning or
selling improved stoves to several users for in-home trials, followed by a meeting with
users to discuss their perceptions of the stoves.”

     ASK: “Would you be willing to participate in future Focus Group Discussions and
     Home Trials?”

             1. No     2. Yes → If Yes, provide the following information:

“Thank you for your willingness to participate. We will inform you of the upcoming dates
for the Focus Group Discussions. Please note that Home Trial participation will be

3.   How to ask questions

       a.   Standardize your survey approach with all participants.




                         Gold Standard Passport version 2.1 July 2009                        45
                      Gold Standard Local Stakeholder Consultation Report




         b. Do not read the multiple choice answer options to the survey participant.
            Instead, let the survey participant provide authentic responses and then
            circle the closest corresponding answers.
         C. Account for interviewer bias: interviewer training is very important to reduce
            bias. Once interviewers have heard the same response to a question several
            times, it is easy to become prone to suggesting the same answer to other
            participants. It is also important not to ask prompting questions For example,
            ask if the improved stove uses more or less fuel, rather than asking if it saves
            fuel, or if takes more or less time to cook, rather than asking if it is faster than
            an alternative.

Annex 4. Local Cookstove Industry Assessment

Cookstove Industry Assessment
The Cookstove Industry Assessment will help us understand the distribution and supply chain
resources that currently exist within a given community. This is important for two reasons:

        1. We want to understand how to best utilize existing resources that can be deployed on
           behalf of this project in order to maximize efficiencies.
        2. We want to understand how to avoid doing harm by recognizing any market participants
           that may be displaced by this project in order to avoid negative impacts.

This assessment should be implemented in all the communities where User Assessments are
taking place. In the event that User Assessments are in rural areas that do not have an
established improved stove industry, the Cookstove Industry Assessment should be conducted in
the closest town that has stove retailers, or individual artisans who sell household cookstoves.

The information requested below should be gathered from local sources including NGOs,
municipalities, and companies. Please collect and record as much information as possible. Please
bring a camera and take digital photographs of each stove encountered from the top, and from
the side, with the camera centered on the opening through which fuel enters the stove.

Please collect as much information as possible.
