Risking life to cook a meal
Traditional solid-fuel cooking solutions include cookstoves such as three-stone fires, unvented clay shaped stoves, standard charcoal cookstoves, and poorly vented coal cookstoves.
Improved cooking solutions
Cooking solutions encompass modern fuel cookstoves, renewable fuel cooking solutions, and the entire range of improved and advanced biomass cookstoves.
Benefits of clean cookstoves
Clean cookstoves come with many benefits besides the reduction of CO2 in the atmosphere and the decreasing deforestation. Cookstoves projects contribute significantly to the local community and reduce their exposure to toxic air pollution, lowering their health risks.
