Improved Household Charcoal Stoves

Greater Bamako Region, Mali

The context
This project reduces GHG emissions by distributing fuel-efficient charcoal stoves. The improved charcoal stoves reduce fuel consumption by introducing a ceramic liner, increasing combustion efficiency, and retaining heat. The project reduces Mali’s wood and charcoal consumption while offering families financial relief from rising fuel costs. Women and children are freed from time-consuming cooking processes, and public health is improved through minimized exposure to pollutants from traditional open-fire cooking. This project reduces an average amount of 72,112 metric tons of CO2e per year.
