Good Health and Well-being Affordable and Clean Energy Climate Action
Why a clean cooking stove?
With an energy-saving cooker, the CO2 emission during cooking is considerably reduced in comparison to original cookers, so this has a positive effect against climate change.
In addition, toxic gases in kitchens are greatly reduced, which protects the health of families. In addition, women and children save time that they previously spent collecting firewood. This was often several hours a day.
Besides, the more efficient cookers reduce the deforestation of the forests, since less firewood has to be collected from the forests, which in turn has a positive influence on the climate.
How exactly does it work?
When used, the consumption of wood and charcoal is reduced by up to 65% compared to conventional methods. The stoves consist of a combustion chamber made of fired clay, a grate made of metal or clay and a casing made of tinplate. The energy-saving cooker is a weather-independent alternative for resource-saving, clean cooking
The stoves are made directly by the local population in Madagaska and sold to the people for a few local daily wages
The organization ADES has the long-term goal to convert the population of Madagascar to sustainable methods of cooking. The aim is to protect the forest and the climate with energy-efficient cooking appliances
Support these SDGs
The Sustainable Development Goals from the United Nations are the blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all. They address the global challenges we face, including those related to poverty, inequality, climate change, environmental degradation, peace and justice. The 17 Goals are all interconnected, and in order to leave no one behind, it is important that we achieve them all by 2030.
