Project Description

Practical Action was the lead implementer, starting in 2005, for CHF's stove projects in Darfur, Sudan. Women were trained to make their own stoves from local mud / clay and the technology was disseminated gradually through a 'train-the-trainer' approach. The primary objective of the project is to develop the availability of improved woodstoves, which are both affordable and easy to use. Practical Action reported that through its projects, the fuel use has been cut in half and violence towards women is reported to have significantly decreased. The Berkeley report reports that the ITDF stove is not efficient; however this was mostly due to incorrect implementation of the project by CHF. The project compared a locally produced mud stove and an imported metal stove (Berkeley Darfur Stove). The project showed benefits and constraints to both stoves. There is a issue with quality control of locally produced stoves, but the stove construction does lead to the empowerment of women.
