Reducing fuel wood consumption

This year, the Lubutu partnership has reduced fuel wood consumption by more than half.

Following the successful construction of 225 energy efficient stoves, Cool Earth’s Lubutu partners have reduced the risk of respiratory diseases, particularly for women and children.

We already know that the best rainforest custodians are those who rely on it for their survival. Lowering the amount of fuel wood needed means community members can rely on the forest’s natural resources in a more sustainable way.

Now this oven-ready idea is spreading through the community. Volunteers in neighbouring villages Babogombe and Bando have decided to build their own kitchens and energy efficient stoves.

Meet Alafu Sabitu

The Regoly Reserve's Traditional King.

Community members, like the traditional king, are key to ensuring people are using the rainforest’s natural resources in a way that conserves the rainforest, rather than destroy it.

As traditional king, it is Alafu’s duty is to tell the community to protect the forest so it remains standing for the next generation instead of becoming a desert.

The forest is the source of everything for the people of the Regolu Reserve, from food to minerals, they need the forest to survive.

“To protect the forest, we must do it sustainably”
