Project Background

According to the WHO, more than three billion people depend on biomass fuels for cooking. This practice has destroyed many ecosystems and requires an enormous effort to gather. Furthermore WHO studies have shown that exposure to biomass smoke increases the risk of common and serious diseases in both children and adults, resulting in an estimated 1.6 million deaths per year.
