for local people thanks to the project  

Responsible consumption and production

Locally-made stoves

are designed to last on average 5 years of daily use

Climate Action

198,000 tonnes of CO2e

reduced on average per year through reduced fuel requirements and avoided deforestation

Life on land

Less pressure on forests

as the cookstoves requires less fuel

The Solution

The Bamako Cookstoves, distributing fuel-efficient charcoal cookstoves in major towns and market centres, expanding into the arid Sahel zone. The project distributes more efficient ‘Sewa’ cookstoves, they are locally made and hard-wearing and are designed to last on average 5 years of daily use. The stoves require 30-40% less fuel for cooking and greatly reduce the amount of indoor smoke pollution.


The Impact

The project reduces wood and charcoal consumption, alleviating pressure on forests while offering families financial relief from rising fuel costs. Women and children benefit from faster and safer cooking, and public health is improved as people are less exposed to harmful smoke from traditional open-fire cooking. Cooking on traditional cookstoves is deeply entrenched in Mali as many people do not have the resources to upgrade to a safer option. With carbon finance, this project is breaking the trend and changing lives by making clean efficient cookstoves accessible to communities around the country.
