With proper design and implementation, cookstove programs have the potential to improve the health, livelihoods and environment for the three billion people who still rely on traditional stoves and solid fuels to feed their families.
This toolkit can be used by various stakeholders, but is primarily aimed at bringing USG staff and external project developers and implementers up-to-speed on significant developments in the cookstove sector in recent years. The goal is to showcase, through accurate and up-to-date information and links, the manner in which cookstove projects can achieve impacts across a range of sectors, from forestry, energy and environment to livelihoods and income generation, not to mention health, school feeding, and women’s empowerment. The toolkit provides an overview of how the cookstove sector is evolving, best practices and key challenges.
