The NAMA intends to sustainably stimulate the supply and demand for energy efficient cookstoves in Guatemala with tailor-made financial and technical support mechanisms.

Activities: (2016 - 2020)
This NAMA is the result of the third call for project proposals of the NAMA Facility.

According to population growth statistics for the next ten years, it is estimated that there will be an average increase of 65,000 new families per year that will use firewood as their main source of energy. As a result the country has set up a dedicated Firewood Commission to implement the National Firewood Strategy. A respective action plan proposes: (i) to enhance access to efficient technologies, (ii) to increase demand, and (iii) to promote an enabling environment for sustainable and efficient firewood use.

Enhanced coordination and consolidation of national and international support is required to achieve scalability and long-term sustainability in the implementation of clean cooking technologies, and for strengthening participatory governance to implement the National Firewood Strategy, which is part of Guatemala’s INDC.

Direct funding leverage: A contribution of 14M is expected from the private sector in the form of credits and microcredits from private financial institutions to purchase clean cookstoves. The public sector will negotiate and allocate approximately 5.5M to increase the sustainable production of firewood through the National Forestry Incentive Programs. Indirect funding leverage: 1.3M are expected from the public sector; this contribution will be provided through ministerial and other institutional actions (financing of experts, services, logistics other expenses).
