The project involves promotion of improved cooking stoves (ICS) to the people of socially deprived community; specifically to the Dalits (the so called untouchables) and Janajatis (indigenous people). The project intends to avail the households with clean cooking solutions; thereby, displacing the less efficient traditional cooking stoves from the kitchen with stoves of better efficiency. Replacement of the traditional cooking stoves with ICS will reduce the exposure of the family members, specifically women, to the indoor air pollution and therefore result in saving of health related expenses. Each stoves disseminated under the project will potentially reduce the firewood consumption by half.Rated 5.00 out of 5

The purpose of this small scale Programme of Activities (“SSC-PoA”) is the dissemination of efficient cooking stoves in Bangladesh.
The Programme will promote two broad categories of Improved Cooking Stoves (“ICS”):
• Domestic biomass-burning stoves
• Non-domestic biomass-burning stoves
ICS’s disseminated under this PoA are more efficient in transferring heat from the fuel to the pot than the so called traditional stoves. During the course of the PoA, the goal of the PoA is to transform the kitchens of households in Bangladesh through the sale and distribution of ICS. The ICS will have multiple benefits of reducing global greenhouse gas emissions, reducing pressure on forests and woody biomass resources, and also reducing indoor air pollution associated with use of traditional stoves.

The project activity involves bundling 5,000 household biogas plants located in rural parts of Assam in India commissioned from March 2020 onwards. The biogas plants are primarily deenbandhu model. The project biogas plant replaces commonly used inefficient wood fired mud stoves thereby replacing firewood consumption. The household biogas plants utilize cattle dung in the digester for the production of biogas which is burnt in gas stoves for household cookings. This leads to reduction of greenhouse gas emissions by displacing conventionally used non-renewable biomass with renewable biogas. In addition, the hygienic conditions in the rural areas will be improved by an appropriate disposal of waste. Further, residue from the bio digesters can be used as organic fertilizer and will improve soil fertility in rural areas. Project activity will contribute towards sustainable development by replacing firewood with biogas generated from the biodigesters.
