Inefficient cooking is one of the root causes of gender inequality in developing countries. An improved cookstove, supported through carbon finance, can have a widespread positive impact on women, families and the environment.
Did you know that 40% of our global population relies on solid fuel for cooking? According to the World Health Organisation, many of these three billion people are living below the poverty line in rural areas of developing countries. And according to the Global Alliance for Clean Cookstoves, many of them are women.
Companies that invest in carbon offsetting through efficient cookstove projects can not only report the emission reduction, but can also talk about the impacts that the projects have on biodiversity, the health of local communities and, significantly, the empowerment of women.
