Since 2015, SNV and the Institute for Global Environmental Strategies (IGES) have been involved in the Asian Development Bank (ADB) project, Harnessing Climate Change Mitigation Initiatives to Benefit Women. The project supported a set of pilots that engaged women in the construction, marketing and sales of improved cookstoves. The project not helped only mitigate climate change but brought important livelihood benefits to women in Lao PDR.
