Improved Cook Stoves for East Africa (ICSEA) PoA(ID: 103000000001449)
The purpose of this small-scale Programme of Activities (PoA) is stimulating the dissemination of improved cook stoves (ICS) in East Africa. The Programme will encompass different types of ICS, depending on the supplier and the user of the stoves. The types of stoves are different sizes of the following models: • stoves for firewood • stoves for charcoal The stoves are both transportable as well as fixed built-in models, serving domestic or institutional users. These ICS are more efficient in transferring heat to the meals, thus saving fuel compared to traditional stoves used in East Africa. By reducing fuel consumption, the PoA reduces greenhouse gas emissions from the use of non-renewable biomass.
