Mitigation actions

Priority Zone Development Program: Ecological Stoves
357 ecological stoves have been acquired, designed to reduce CO2 emissions arising from conventional fires that simultaneously aggravate forest and grassland deforestation. This sustainable development focus seeks to improve quality-of-life for the very neediest, such as those in indigenous communities. Not only does it contribute to reducing deforestation and improving air quality; it also creates time-savings for individuals who have more time to do more for their families. Start year 2012

Rehabilitation of the El Duraznillo Spring Feeder Line at Santa María la Alta
2.607 km of feeder lines from the El Duraznillo spring to the indigenous village of Santa María la Alta were rehabilitated. The community’s drinking water line is gravity activated and serves some 7000 residents. The system saves approximately USD $2300 monthly in electricity and above all, mitigates annual CO2 emissions, making it a socially, economically and environmentally sustainable system. These actions constitute best practices that benefit communities in the short-, medium- and long-term. Start year 2012

Rural Zone Drinking Water and Sanitary Services Systems Construction and Rehabilitation: San José Buenavista Wastewater Treatment Plant
A wastewater treatment plant was constructed in the indigenous community of Ngigua de San José Buenavista designed to mitigate ground and underground aquifer contamination as it builds a new focus on water reuse and savings given that treated wastewater can be used for agricultural irrigation. This not only protects the environment but also incentivizes the local economy to create irrigation areas in low rainfall zones. Average per-plant volume is 3.28 lt/s Start year 2012

Rural Housing Program: Resident-Built Sustainable Housing in Indigenous Communities
Joint efforts have been made for the construction of 100 sustainable housing units in the indigenous communities of Ngigua de San Juan Sacabasco, San Martín Esperilla, San Francisco Esperilla, Piedra Incada de la Soledad and Palo Verde. The housing is made of adobe, uses rainwater as well as ecological, flushless toilets, which results in virtual-zero water consumption. This housing focus is socially, economically and environmentally sustainable, leading to carbon dioxide emissions mitigation and enhanced long-term qualityof- life. Start year 2012

Xrao Recreation Center, San Marcos Tlacoyalco
A cultural/recreational center has been constructed with greenspaces and pubic restrooms at the indigenous village of Ngigua de San Marcos Tlacoyalco. This infrastructure contributes to more rational water use because it features a rainwater catchment system, an approximately 600m2 rainwater capture roof and a 15,000-liter storage cistern for greenspace maintenance. The construction of healthier, more sustainable urban centers designed to promote coexistence between humans and the natural environment, is also enhanced Start year 2012
