Care: Case Baseline Study
CASE Project started in January 2008 and is being implemented by CARE international-Rwanda in partnership with KIST CITT and ADENYA. A total of 24,000 poor Households of Nyaruguru, Huye, Gisagara and Nyamagabe are targeted and the project intends to reduce by 50% firewood used by 2010.
The baseline study brings out the current situation of energy supply and demand as well as household condition in the targeted area. The analysis assessed the time and quantity saved for a household using improved stoves as well as household improved living conditions (income, education, health and environmental impacts) derived from the use of the improved stoves.
