On the occasion of the 10-year anniversary, myclimate presents every month one “Project of the month”. After the last month’s Project "Composting reduces methan emissions on Bali", this month follows the project "Efficient cooking in Siaya, Kenya".
The project promotes energy efficient cook stoves for rural communities in the Siaya County in Nyanza Province, Western Kenya. Households in the project area use a traditional three-stone fireplace for cooking and thereby burn large amounts of firewood in a very inefficient way. This is an important driver for deforestation in the region.
