Instituto Perene partnered with the international organization Gold Standard to explore the intersection of SDGs 5 (Gender Equality), 7 (Affordable and Clean Energy) and 13 (Climate Action). The resulting report Women/Energy/Climate was presented jointly at the International Conference on Sustainable Development at Columbia University in September 2018. The full report can be read here.
Instituto Perene recently completed the Stakeholder Consultation process for our third cookstove project, bringing together over one hundred participants from the Recôncavo region of Bahia in community meetings and working groups to discuss the proposed project. This is the first cookstove project in Brazil to adopt the Gold Standard for the Global Goals standard, which is based on the United Nations 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
