Project description:

The project activity involves replacement of existing in-efficient cookstoves being used by the majority of Nigerian population with highly efficient. Over 71% of Nigeriaโ€™s population, mainly poor people, cooks with solid fuel in inefficient traditional Cookstoves and open fires resulting in serious indoor air pollution.

Due to this, Nigeria records the highest number of indoor air pollution-related deaths, averaging 64,000 annually, especially among women and children in poor families
