The 'Financing efficient cookstoves for rural Andean communities' project, funded by the Inter-American Development Bank and World Vision Australia, aims to promote the use of clean cookstoves in Andean communities. Its broad objective is to promote the development of improved cookstove (ICS) activities by reducing the current complexity of project implementation and by benefiting from the experience of existing projects. As a part of this initiative, Gold Standard has carried out an assessment of the fNRB value for four Latin American countries – Bolivia, Columbia, Honduras and Guatemala.

The fraction of Non-Renewable Biomass (NRB) assessment requires extensive collection of consistent and reliable data, which is not always available in developing countries. Determining the project-specific fNRB value is therefore a source of systemic uncertainty for the project proponent which can involve high costs and may represent a barrier to project development.

Gold Standard has assessed the fNRB values for each of these countries at a national level to reduce the project developer’s work load and provide a consistent and standardised value.
