Improved cook stoves – Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC)

The project aims to scale up the use of improved cooking stoves (ICS) in households of Democratic Republic of the Congo. Quicker heating-up and longer cooking and heat retaining reduce fuel needs and lower combustion fumes. Reduction in needs for wood energy relieves workload associated with the collection and buying. The project improves lifestyles of vulnerable people, women especially, while limiting deforestation. It also leads to poverty reduction, including through higher employment and promotion of local markets.
