Session 3: The impacts of cooking with solid fuels on the health, safety and economic opportunities of women

Abstract

This presentation by Zahrah Nesbitt-Ahmed (IDS) focuses on impacts on women. It concludes:

  • Women undertake the bulk of the work pertaining to solid fuel collection and cooking with it
  • Women are disproportionately impacted by negative effects of solid fuels - time, health, economic opportunities
  • Clean cooking stoves are a way to minimise negative impacts and maximise sustainable and collective empowerment of women and girls
  • BUT this is not enough and there is also need for complimentary measures
