Clean Cooking Activities
In most rural communities of Delta State, about 80% of residents depend solely on fuel wood as source of energy for cooking and heating of Water thereby placing an unsustainable burden on the forest and depleting gradually the sequestration capacity of the forest. The climate change department seeks to cut down the level of greenhouse gas emissions through cooking and heating by introducing to these communities clean cook-stoves (Eco- stoves) that are energy efficient than the traditional tripod burners that waste energy. The climate change Department carried out this project in three rural communities in Delta State Producing and distributing over 2500 Eco stoves in these communities. In urban and semi urban cities, the department embarks on installations of solar installations in primary healthcare centers and biogas digesters that turn kitchen waste to cooking gas.
The Climate Change Department is in the forefront of promoting the use of clean cook stoves (Eco stoves) through various means of awareness and sensitization programmes/workshops in Delta State of Nigeria. We organize community mobilization programmes on quarterly bases and renewable energy, energy efficiency and low carbon and climate resilient development programmes and projects are the emphasis of our sensitization campaigns. We will help through our awareness and sensitization rallies to make the rural community embrace the use of the clean cook stoves as against the traditional tripod open wood burners.
