Efficient Cook Stoves
Over 900M people are exposed to indoor air pollution caused by fuel wood and an estimated 360k people die prematurely each year for this reason. This project enables households to reduce health risks and fuel costs by distributing efficient biomass cookstoves simultaneously increasing employment.
About the project
Of all nations in the world, India utilizes the most wood for fuel. This implies, over 900 million individuals are exposed to indoor air pollution on a daily basis, which is thought to be the cause of 360,000 premature deaths annually. Through the provision of more effective biomass cook stoves, this initiative enables households to drastically lower health risks and fuel expenses. Additionally, the manufacturing, sales and distribution of the stoves have created more jobs, and subsidies are available to assist households unable to afford upfront costs.
In addition to delivering emission reductions to take climate action (SDG 13), the project supports other Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs):
