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
