Efficient Cookstoves Project

The project aims to boost the market for efficient cooking technologies and popularise their use, as this will help reduce national consumption of non-renewable biomass fuels and, consequently, greenhouse gas emissions. This project contributes significantly to the local community, improves their habitat, provides them with sustainable livelihoods, and empowers women and children.
