Titre : GHG Mitigation and Sustainable Development through the Promotion of Energy Efficient Cooking in Social Institutions in Ethiopia

Pays : Ethiopie

Objectif
The project aimed to disseminate and install fuel-efficient stoves in Ethiopia and, to support the development of a sustainable business model for promotion of energy efficient stoves.

Présentation
Cooking in social and commercial institutions in Ethiopia is mostly done over open fire using large volumes of wood. The project has improved the institutional cooking efficiency within the social institutions. During the project 256 energy efficient institutional Rocket biomass stoves have be installed in 105 schools, universities and correctional facilities in Ethiopia reaching approximately 50,000 students. The impacts of the Rocket stoves include reduced fuel wood consumption and as a result reduced deforestation. It has also led to GHG mitigation, creation of new businesses for production and installation of the efficient stoves as well as reduced fuel expenditure for social institutions. The project has also have health and social benefits as the exposure of 200-300 women working in the kitchens to indoor air pollutants has been reduced and the use of child labour for fuel collection diminished. The project has developed a carbon finance strategy to finance continued operation of the stoves, their replacement and to expand benefits to more schools and other social institutions.
