The Climate Change Center of the Republic of Korea donated the vehicles and related equipments to the Department of Agriculture under the Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock and Irrigation to help its distribution project of efficient cook-stoves.
The donation ceremony was held at the Agriculture Extension and Rural Development Training Center in Zeyathiri Township, Nay Pyi Taw, on Wednesday.
Union Minister Dr Aung Thu, Deputy Chief of Mission Minister Counsellor of the Embassy of the Republic of Korea (ROK) in Myanmar, and Executive Vice President from the SK Telecom delivered the speeches and the CCC Secretary General explained the donations of vehicles, laptops, projectors, portable power generators and mobile handsets.
The project is being implemented in six States and Regions of the country to be able to reduce the use of firewood in supporting environmental conservation while extending education on this issue to the rural people. The efficient cook-stoves could also reduce carbon emission from kitchens which traditionally use firewood and help for receiving carbon credit.
