One thousand five hundred women in the rural areas will soon embark on a project to alleviate poverty and prevent the loss of mangrove and forest for fuel wood.
These women will be part of the Rocket Stove Project which has been funded by India, Brazil and South Africa.
United Nations Development Program Country Director Bakhodir Burkhanov says as part of the Rocket Stove Project, the women in rural areas will be trained to construct rocket stoves and generate income.
“These stoves use less fuel wood, increase efficiency through shorter cooking times or reduce or eliminate smoke from open fire cooking which reduces emissions.”
These project will also include setting up of wood lots in rural communities for sustainable cultivation of fuel wood resources and also the construction of storage facility.
