Greentriper Project : Cookstove Project in Benin

Mangroves Economy is a carbon solidarity initiative supported by Village Monde and Eco-Benin related to the planting, protection and valorization of mangroves.

The Greentriper Cookstove Project is a Gold Standard certified offset project

Project A : The Mangroves Economy project supported by Village Monde aims to improve the living conditions and resilience of 11 200 disadvantaged people living in environments highly impacted by climate change.

The objective is to reduce the pressure of these rapidly growing populations on their natural resources and to protect fragile ecosystems through the development of ecotourism as an alternative, inclusive and sustainable means of livehood in the mangrove and sub-arid zones of Benin.

Project B : In Benin, wood is the main source of energy in rural area. The daily use of wood by Beninese households represents a risk of deforestation and environmental degradation.  

This project aims to distribute in the communes near the Pendjari National Park, a “Wanrou” cooking equipment. More efficient and less wood consuming, the goal of this project is to reduce the use of wood by communities.  This action also allows to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, to improve the quality of life of the local populations and contributes to women empowerment.
