Challenge

In the Camp of Minawao where live more than 50 000 refugees, only wood is used to cook on traditional foyers disposed on three stones where fire is not centrated because of wind. These traditional foyers are ineffective and the wooden consumption is thus brought up because of the dispersal of flames and of the heat under the influence of the wind. Other inconveniences can be namely : lack of appropriate control of the fire, exposure to heat and smokes, the fire risks.

Solution

The present project which aims at the reduction of the wooden consumption, the environmental protection and the conservation of the resources, consists on introducing 5 000 improved stoves of Bangui type to 5 000 households of the Refugees living in the Camp of Minawao. These improved stoves which are made with the sheet steel of 0,8 to 1mm of thickness have a life expectancy from 3 to 5 years old. They are more effective in terms of duration of cooking.

Long-Term Impact

Theorically, we can calculate the effects of the project of improved stoves to refugees of the Camp of Minawao in terms of economies of money and the forest surface protected due to the reduction of the consumption of wood and/or charcoal. The most sensitive direct impact is felt at a micro-economic level, in particular when the fuel must be bought and it is one of the reasons why the acceptance of improved soves is more favorable when the fuel is rare and expensive.
