The Improved Cook Stoves Programme in Lao PDR aims to become financially sustainable by the revenues of carbon credits. The programme develops and promotes stoves that use up to 25% less charcoal or wood than traditional stoves, thus saving fuel and lowering greenhouse gas emissions. 

Such improved cookstove technologies are eligible for carbon financing. Developing the carbon credits under Gold Standard the ICS programme can become a unique and economically sustainable initiative, which significantly improves livelihoods and reduces green house gas emissions and environmental pressure at the same time.
