Improved Household Charcoal Stoves

Mali, Africa

The project will reduce greenhouse emissions by dissemination of fuel-efficient charcoal stoves. The improved charcoal stove (SEWA stove) reduces fuel consumption by introduction of a ceramic liner that increases combustion efficiency and retains heat. The project reduces Mali’s wood and charcoal consumption while offering families financial relief from rising fuel costs. Women and children are freed from time consuming cooking processes, and public health is improved through minimised exposure to pollutants from traditional open-fire cooking.
