Our Experience And Interest In The Four PCIA Central Focus Areas

Social/Cultural barriers to using traditional fuels and stoves:

Adapting to wood replenishment of the stove (Save 80), acceptance of solar cookers, the idea of cooking under the sun is difficult to accept and the people are already enshrined with their own methods of cooking.

Market development for improved cooking technologies:

The market is developing currently in a large way with the subsidy courtesy of the CDM financing this has made the stove sell able and greatly improved sales of the Save 80, we also have a system for instalment payment especially in ruraL AREAS it has also improved sales.

Technology standardization for cooking, heating and ventilation:

The Save 80 wood stoves are made of high quality stainless steel material with a life span of about 10 years, it is of very high standard.

Indoor air pollution exposure and health monitoring:

Our team will always visit the women using these stoves at the pilot sites to ensure their adaptability and ensure its savings. With CDM in the picture now extensive monitoring is beng introduced to track stoves and usage, we have together wih our partners drawn up a CDM maual which guides the monitoring activity.
