The Development, Planning and Dissemination of Wood/Charcoal Utilising Cooking Devices

To ensure meaningful fuelwood conservation, the rural people must be persuaded to abandon the use of fuel-inefficient open hearths which are widely used in the rural areas. The development and diffusion of a fuel efficient woodstove in rural areas is described. The aim of the strategy is not only to familiarise the rural people with a new and beneficial technology but to satisfy national objectives of a. fuelwood/environmental conservation; b. alleviation of felt hardships; and c. employment generation.
