In many developing countries the dependency on firewood and charcoal as a source of energy is very high, with around 3 billion people combusting solid fuels on open fires to meet their cooking and heating needs. As a result, indoor air pollution is one of the ten major threats globally, causing almost 2 million deaths annually due to solid fuel use. The burning of firewood that is illegally collected and the production of charcoal also contributes to the emission of greenhouse gases and deforestation or forest degradation.
