Clean Cooking Activities
Our flagship product is the solar thermal cooker, which aims to greatly reduce the dependency on solid fuels, particularly firewood, for domestic cooking and heating purposes. With the proliferation of our solar cookers, we aim to improve indoor air pollution and its health and environmental impacts.
To achieve this, we are currently running a pilot program in Lahore aimed at information gathering in an urban slum setting, which globally has been an immediate market for introducing an energy efficient product for domestic cooking use. Our pilot program covers the following;
- Mapping and identification of urban slums
- Information gathering and baseline data survey of community (understanding domestic energy needs and culinary behavior)
- Community mobilization activities , awareness and behavior change campaign
- Vocational training and skills development workshop for women and potential women entrepreneurs
- Monitoring and evaluation, sustainability, social impact assessment
The end objective of our pilot program is to ultimately scale up health promoting, efficient and affordable, environmentally sustainable household technologies through establishing a women entrepreneur run distribution network that leads to independence of solid fuels and economic empowerment.
Like the rest of the developing nations in the world, Pakistan has a significant (40%) rural off-grid population that are still using biomass solid fuels for domestic energy needs.
The alarming rate of deforestation in Pakistan (est. 47,000 hectares / annum) have reduced our forest covers to 2.4% - 5%. This has directly effected climate change and monsoon patterns in our country and lead to a massive flood in 2010. Due to the rise in deforestation on river banks in previous years, the soil more prone to erosion the floods were carried all the way to the south displacing over 20 Million people.
While international organizations have taken steps to make investments and stimulate behavior change in several countries, Pakistan, which is arguably at the brink of no return in terms of environmental damage and sustainable practices has had little or no attention.
We at Jaan Pakistan are committed to bring about change and initiating the clean cook movement at home. We offer to conduct research and behavior change campaigns to a potential 80 Million strong through our small and dedicated team.
