Darfur low smoke stoves (phase 3) Sudan


Titre : Darfur low smoke stoves (phase 3) Sudan

Pays : Soudan
Lieu : Darfur

Date : July 2018 - June 2021

Contexte : Indoor pollution created by smoke from using firewood and charcoal for cooking is a major cause of death across the world, particularly for women and children. Households in North Darfur, Sudan mainly depend on firewood and charcoal for cooking, which has also led to extensive deforestation in the region.

Objectif : The objectives of this phase are : * Reduce pressure on dwindling forest resources in Darfur * Raise the awareness of El Fashir residents on the negative health and environment impacts caused by excessive use of fuelwood * Reduce indoor air pollution in the kitchen thereby improving the health of women and children under five * Train households on the efficient use and safety of LPG and promote widespread use of LPG as cooking fuel in El Fashir by removing barriers * Develop a microfinance credit system, revolving fund to facilitate access to LPG for poor households and build the capacity of Women Development Associations to run a sustainable microfinance credit system.

LPG fuel and stoves are an affordable substitute for wood and charcoal in household cooking in Darfur. As a result of this work, thousands of families now have a clean kitchens, clean lungs and more money to spend on essentials. It is the first carbon trade financed project in Sudan.
