GHG Emission Reduction through use of Bondhu Chula (Improved Cook Stoves) in Bangladesh(ID: 103000000002047)

Description
Of the total population of 160 million in Bangladesh, 90% of the population employ traditional “three-stone” stoves for cooking. The efficiencies of these stoves are low (5% - 15%) producing smoke, carbon monoxide, and carcinogens with particulate pollution levels up to 20 times higher than accepted guidelines. Around 46,000 women, children and the elderly die each year and millions suffer from respiratory diseases, tuberculosis, asthma, cardiovascular diseases, lung cancer, eye and skin infections as a direct result of exposure to indoor air pollution. Moreover, wood and agricultural waste is becoming increasingly scarce and costly, depriving the soil of nutrients and putting additional financial pressure on poor households. The rapidly expanding population and heavy reliance on biomass has put pressure on Bangladesh’s limited forest resources. Bangladesh’s efforts to attain its health-related Millennium Development Goals will significantly depend on improving indoor air pollution. For the 99% of the rural population utilizing traditional cook stoves, the rapid and widespread adoption of improved cook stoves (ICS) is the best option to reduce health impacts, carbon emissions, cooking times and fuel wood collection costs. These stoves burn fuel more efficiently and are designed to draw off smoke and toxins, thus creating cleaner indoor air for women and children. ICS will improve the quality of people's lives by: • Reducing exposure to harmful gasses and toxins within the household, thereby, improving the health of women, children and the elderly • Reducing environmental degradation outside the household • Reducing carbon emissions to the atmosphere beyond the household • Reducing time to cook and gather fuel wood leaving women free to do other productive activities, improving their quality of life • Reducing costs of purchasing fuel wood improving economic well-being • Improving biodiversity as the programme reduces pressure on remaining forest reserves in Bangladesh • Creating entrepreneurs, employment opportunities for suppliers, manufacturers, technicians, assistants, office staff and leading to the development of ICS markets in the project area. Over 5,000 entrepreneurs are involved in the manufacture and distribution of these stoves.
