The project aims to mitigate carbon dioxide emissions and reduce the pressure on local forests through the substitution of non-renewable charcoal with an efficient and renewable alternative.

The project aimed to increase resilience to climate change by conducting holistic sustainability assessments and implementing designs based on standardized criteria that offer affordable, appropriate and cost-effective rain water harvesting (RWH) solutions.
The project aims to increase recycling of electric and electronic scrap (e-scrap) while improving local environmental conditions, livelihood and health conditions for e-scrap workers and poor neighbouring societies.
The project promotes transfer of knowledge and skill on the sustainable management of water resources through cost-effective climate-proofed water storage and conservation strategies.
