Description

This study aims to provide an understanding of the tradeoffs between fuel options and environmental impacts across the value chain (from production through use), and to provide a guide to inform decisions regarding fuel choices for programs and investors. It is meant to aid cookstove and fuel stakeholders to identify and prioritize opportunities, to remove barriers, and increase efficiency across the fuel supply chain while also increasing awareness of environmental, economic and gender and livelihood impacts of various fuel types. The study is a companion to the Global Alliance for Clean Cookstoves' Fuel Analysis, Comparison & Integration Tool (FACIT).
