On May 30, ADEL Sofala in partnership with IIED - International Institute for Environment and Development - has started the distribution of improved cook stoves in three districts of city of Beira: Macurungo, Matacuane and Munhava under the REDD program - Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation.
This program, which is being implemented in the districts of Dondo, Nhamatanda, Chibabava and in City of Beira, in addition to the massification of cook stoves, also includes the promotion of “save firewood cook stoves”, reforestation activities and coal production through improved technology called Casamance in order to cover all biomass energy exploration chain.
In this pilot phase, 1000 stoves will be distributed in those neighborhoods, to the same number of families, which will be sold at a symbolic price. The families concerned have been selected from a survey carried out for the purpose.
The aim is to ensure that this experience is spread out to the whole province and, ideally, across the country.
