Climate ActionsSustainability StrategiesClean Cooking Improves the Health of Rural Women In Odisha

Partnership to benefit the health and livelihoods of rural women

CoreCarbonX and Vida Carbon Corp are working together to help 300,000 households in the Indian state of Odisha switch to clean cooking with the help of improved and very efficient stoves. These cookstoves reduce energy loss and increase heat efficiency.

The World Health Organization estimates that 2.4 billion people in the developing world still cook over open flames or inefficient stoves fueled by environmentally-harmful fuels. Cleaner cooking offers a solution to the dangerous indoor air pollution which is the leading cause of death among women and children in homes.

Partnership to benefit the health and livelihoods of 300,000 households  

CoreCarbonX uses a unique distribution method to reach rural residents in remote regions who now have access to clean cooking. The cookstoves are distributed at a little or no cost. Rural women are made aware of its advantages over open cooking and trained on cookstove operation and its cleaning. The cookstoves are serialized and being tracked to ensure project success and collect user feedback.

This project achieves 9 UN Sustainable Development Goals delivering co-benefits as given below:

  • Improvement in air quality benefits the health of women and kids.
  • Creation of employment opportunities in nearby areas for the distribution, installation, and maintenance of cookstoves
  • Reduced firewood needs lower deforestation and nearby forest degradation.
  • Lessons manual labor for wood gathering, which is largely a woman’s job.

While delivering various co-benefits, this project has a significant geographic reach and is very scalable.
