Sustainability Assessment of Improved Household Cookstove Dissemination
The Development Assistance Committee of the Organisation for Economic Co- operation and Development (OECD DAC) defines sustainability as:
1. … the continuation of benefits from a development intervention
after major assistance has been completed
2. the probability of continued long term benefits, and
3. the resilience to risks of the net benefit flows over time.
Considering this, a development project can be considered sustainable if its achievements continue into the long term.
