The Low Smoke Cookstove project is the first registered carbon credit project in Sudan and the first to be developed in a conflict zone. The project was developed to improve household health by replacing traditional cooking methods – burning wood and charcoal inside the home – with low smoke LPG stoves. The World Health Organisation (WHO) estimates that smoke inhalation from traditional wood burning stoves is equal to smoking 2 packs of cigarettes a day. 

Women and children are most vulnerable to this risk and also to the time commitments of cooking and collecting firewood, often to the detriment of their school attendance or their ability to work and gain additional income for their families.

The project creates opportunities for female employment as the project directly employs local women. e.g, to help undertake the project surveys. The stoves are made affordable to families via micro-finance loans, managed by the women-led Development Association Network.
