Description

An assessment of the risks incurred when women and girls seek fuel for household energy needs, and of the decreased risk after the introduction of fuel-efficient stoves. The findings from this end-line assessment suggest that the exposure to risk of violence faced by the IDPs decreased after the introduction of fuel-efficient stoves. This reduction is primarily evidenced by fewer firewood collection trips and less time spent collecting firewood after the distribution of the fuel-efficient stoves and at the time of the end-line. In addition, participants reported that they were spending less money on buying firewood and were earning more money overall after receiving fuel-efficient stoves. While the introduction of fuel-efficient stoves created a number of positive outcomes, much more needs to be done to ensure the security and well-being of these communities. In particular, the lack of adequate food remains the main concern for people living in both the Nzulo and Shasha displacement sites.
