Currently inefficient and polluting cooking regimes are deeply established throughout West Africa, and in Mali in particular. This project reduces greenhouse gas emissions by distributing fuel-efficient charcoal stoves to members of the community that would normally utilze traditional open-fire cooking methods that emit harmful smoke. The improved cookstoves reduce fuel consumption by introducing a ceramic liner, increasing combustion efficiency, and retaining heat. The project reduces Mali’s wood and charcoal consumption, significantly reducing greenhouse gas emissions. At the same time, the improved cookstoves provide relief from high fuel costs, reduced exposure to health-damaging airborne pollutants, faster cooking time, and increased cleanliness and convenience.
