Efficient Fuel Wood Cooking Stoves Project in Foothills and Plains of Central Region of Nepal



The purpose of the proposed project is to reduce fuel consumption by introducing fuel efficient cooking stoves in six Terai districts namely: Parsa, Bara, Rautahat, Sarlahi, Mahottari, and Dhanusa of Central Development Region of Nepal. It is expected that the project will contribute towards checking deforestation and degradation of forests in the Terai region through wider and voluntary participation of the people in adopting fuel efficient stoves. This will also contribute to improvement in quality of lives of the targeted people through reduction of drudgery, time and money spent on fuel wood collection and through improvement of indoor environment.
