BACKGROUND

Established in 1976, GERES is an international NGO working to improve living conditions, preserve the environment and limit the impacts of climate change. In France (HQ), Europe, Central and South-East Asia, Mediterranean area and Africa GERES is providing sustainable solutions with a triple bottom line: planet, people, and the local economy. GERES mainly focuses on access to clean energy, economic development, environmental conservation, climate change mitigation and adaptation, gender empowerment and enhancement of policies. GERES ensures the sustainability of its award-winning programs through a holistic approach of market-based solutions, innovative financing, awareness raising, local capacity building, enhancement of public policies and sustainable scale-up.

In South-east Asia, more than 25 years of work position us as a regional knowledge hub on wood and biomass energy related topics, for households and for the industry. 

GERES started operating in Myanmar in 2014 to support access to improved cookstoves (ICS) to 300,000 households, empower MSMEs and enhance the policy framework. GERES is now working with communities and entrepreneurs to expand the range of efficient energy products and services accessible to families, and improve access to energy and economic activity through sustainable solutions.
