Clean Fuels & Cook Stoves for Haiti
UNA-SNY Energy Project in New York, NY by Matthias Resch
A community-based evaluation of clean cook stoves in Cyvadier, Jacmel area, and Seguin. Stove models will be provided to target communities, to use and assess economic, social, and cultural appropriateness. Feedback will inform potential adjustments. We will initially prioritize vendors of street food and community kitchens at schools or hospitals, whose public use of these stoves will increase visibility and acceptance. These evaluations will form the basis for roll-out and expansion.
Beneficiaries are largely women and children – those charged with cooking and with collection of firewood. And, of course, the environment.
All partners have a track record of successfully working on the gound and remotely to advance Haitian socio-economic development and community-building. To read more, please visit http://www.unasouthernny.org/energy-project.html
