Fuel-efficient stoves and the SDGs


Since 2015 Cool Earth has worked alongside Flora and Fauna International in the Democratic Republic of Congo to reduce firewood use by installing fuel-efficient stoves. This seemingly small and simple solution is making a measurable difference to the health of the forest. Firewood collection has halved. But the stoves also have the potential to dramatically improve the lives and health of local people, especially women and girls.
