Clean burning stoves in Zambia

This project improves health conditions and quality of life on top of fighting climate change in Zambian households. Consumption of local wood fuel is reduced by up to 70% with these cookstoves.

So far 99% of project households reported a reduction in smoke (or particulate matter) after the introduction of the stoves. 98% reported time savings; female beneficiaries may use time saved collecting fuel or cooking to pursue other education or economic activities.

The stoves saved 4.67 tonnes of wood per household per year.
