Efficient cookstoves in Uganda

Standard: GS      Technology: Cookstoves      Location: Uganda

This improved cookstove project is transforming the market for cooking appliances in Uganda by establishing a sustainable manufacturing and distribution network for fuel-efficient cookstoves. In Uganda, more than 90% of people use wood and charcoal for cooking, generating harmful indoor air pollution and carbon emissions. Additionally, it is estimated that the country’s forests will be completely decimated in 40 years’ time if clearing continues at the current rate. The project helps to improve people’s health and reduce deforestation, while saving 500,000 tonnes of CO2 emissions annually. It also employs around 230 local people, helping them to acquire valuable new skills.

“These cookstoves have improved my life. Because it is clean I save 50% of the charcoal I was using, I was buying charcoal for 2,000 and now I only buy for 1,000, which makes a huge difference.  Even if you light in the house it is smokeless so it is really good for everyone.”
