This project to distribute clean cooking stoves in Nigeria was initiated by local women’s groups.

Over 71 per cent of the population cooks on inefficient cookers over open fires. The resulting air pollution encouraged women in the capital Abuja to develop more fuel-efficient models.

The project enables the production and distribution of stoves with a ceramic cladding that can absorb and store heat better. The reduced amount of smoke produced during cooking improves people’s health. The reduced consumption of firewood and charcoal contributes to the protection of local forests and saves thousands of tons of CO2 every year.
The project thus clearly contributes to the focus SDGs SDG 7 & SDG 13 as well as the essential SDG 1.
