Project type: Household devices
In Bangladesh, more than 90% of the population rely on burning biomass in traditional stoves for their daily cooking needs, resulting in families being exposed to harmful indoor air pollution. This project aims to install improved “Bondhu Chulha” cookstoves in 40,000 households across 2,000 villages in four, predominantly rural, upazilas (districts). With simple design enhancements, these locally made and culturally appropriate stoves burn biomass fuel more efficiently, delivering up to 50% increase in fuel efficiency and 80% smoke reduction. A reduction in fuelwood requirement allows women to spend less time collecting wood, and household expenditure and health is improved.
In addition to delivering emissions reductions to take climate action (SDG 13), the project delivers a number of other benefits including:
