Cookstove is an initiative of Sun24 aimed at the reduction of carbon IV oxide emission. JDPC Onitsha partnered with CCFN in corroboration with CCMAI on capacity training targeting women on climate change mitigation, climate change crisis, innovative traditional cookstove and climate change adaptation was carried out by Justice Development & Peace/Caritas (JDPC) Onitsha.
We had 318 participants, 302 females and 16 males in 9 communities (Mmiata –Anam, Ogidi, Umumbo, Nkwelle- Ezunanka, Abatete, Nnokwa, Umueri, Umunachi, &Umudioka communities). The cookstove reduces carbon emissions by the use of small stones / rocks which raises the fire woods and allows the ashes to fall to the ground. It entails, efficient cooking – when the small stone glows (that is catch fire) it emits and retains heat, to foster less time used in cooking. The stone also allows air to circulate under the fire thereby reducing energy and time used in blowing the fire.
