Ashden Award – WWF Democratic Republic of the Congo, efficient charcoal stoves

WWF is training local businesses to build and sell cheap, culturally appropriate stoves that halve the amount of charcoal needed, so helping protect the sensitive forest environment. It’s also helping landowners start sustainable tree plantations for charcoal, to help meet Goma’s needs and reduce deforestation. So far 45,000 stoves have been sold.
