Clean Cooking Activities
GUK has been implementing different programme on environmental & climate change issues. Climate change impact is a great threat in Bangladesh. Considering these GUK has introduced environment and human health friendly activities in it’s working area. As a part of this effort GUK has been distributing improved cooking stoves to reduce the climate vulnerability.
Traditional cooking stove is not energy efficient, fuel expenditure is high and takes more time. It also creates more smoke that is harmful for human health & environment. Since 2010 GUK with the support of different national & international donor has started improved cooking stoves programme and so far distributed around 7000 stoves among it’s beneficiaries and others through different projects which are mentioned below.
