Safe Access to Fuels and Energy for IDPs in Adamawa State

ICEED is piloting Safe Access to Fuels and Energy Project in Malkohi IDP Camp II, Adamawa State where there has never been any humanitarian provision of fuel-efficient cookstoves. In this camp, all the households cook with firewood using traditional 3-stone and metal tripod stoves. This comes with its negative impacts including significant reported cases of respiratory diseases as a result of indoor air pollution from cooking fires and reported cases of violence between the IDPs and host community as a result of the quest for firewood.

This project supported by Australian High Commission (AUSAID) has trained about 100 women and youth IDPs in Malkohi Camp II and host communities in the production, dissemination and use of fuel-efficient cookstoves. The trained entrepreneurs have produced and disseminated over 1,000 stoves both within and outside the camp. The stoves are consistently achieving over 60% reduction in firewood consumption and better health for the consumers.
