CCX project assess the situation of women in project districts and establish benchmark / baseline indicators that have a bearing with clear monitoring and evaluation plan and form a platform for impact evaluation.
In 2016, CARE India Women centred ICS adoption model was pilot tested by CARE India Solutions for Sustainable Development (CISSD) in 3 districts across Odisha and Chhattisgarh. The project sought to promote sustainable adoption of Improved Cook Stoves (ICS) as a clean cooking energy solution among forest-dependent households in Chhattisgarh and Odisha. In other words, this project seeks to increase the adoption of sustainable lifestyles among Forest Dwelling Households (FDHs) in the Indian State of Odisha and Chhattisgarh.
Assessing the impact
The study established a baseline against which the project intended to measure its performance for different indicators, which are in line with the project log frame. The project also looked at contributing to the women empowerment process through Improved Cook Stoves (ICS) ‘Intervention’.
We are working with both government and non-government organisations to enhance the usage of improved cookstoves.
