In Sudan, cooking with charcoal and firewood contributes to thousands of deaths each year due to smoke inhalation. Surrounding forests are suffering from years of exploitation. In addition, cooking with charcoal emits almost twice as much carbon dioxide as LPG, according to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change.
The Low Smoke Stoves Project is delivering health and economic benefits to households in the strife-torn region of Darfur, Sudan, where climate change, drought and desertification are a fact of life. The project provides a transformational financing scheme to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by replacing traditional wood and charcoal stoves with energy-efficient liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) cook stoves.
