However, the specific objectives of the project was to (i) reduce the pressure on plant based fuel (ii) reduce the carbon emission and (iii) reduce health risk of women arising from solid fuel combustion
â€¢ Health Effects of biomass Fuel Combustion on Women and Children and Options for Exposure Reduction in association with Columbia University Mailman School of Public Health, New York, USA. Funded by WHO since April 2007. Activities include collection of baseline data on demography, fuel uses, respiratory and others illness; provide improve cooking stoves, monitoring of health, enhancement of awareness among local community about improve cooking stoves and health.
â€¢ Steps Towards Reducing Indoor Air Pollution, supported by Canadian Development Agency (CIDA), main objectives of the project are to create an increased awareness on health issue that affect women and children, introduced improved stove, reduce fuel expenses and particularly reduce the indoor air pollution.

The project will start from October 1, 2012.
NACOM is implementing the clean energy program for a long with local communities and during working with them good experiences and skills have been gathered and we will like to share these with other. Exchange of knowledge by networking among Alliance member/partner is one of the important aim for improving our energy program. There are many organizations are working in different parts of the world and we will like to know from them about their success and know-how from the partnership. We will like to interact with global leaders, scientists, institutions through this network, so we can update and equipped for managing the clean energy program in Bangladesh.
