Empowering Delta women with ‘clean’ eco-stoves (in photos)

A collaboration involving the Climate Change Department of the Delta State Ministry of Environment, United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and EcoBank, under the state’s Women Climate Change Adaptation Project, is improving household energy efficiency through the provision of locally fabricated Eco-stoves in some rural communities.

The project commenced recently with community mobilisation and sensitisation in the three communities of Emonu, Ebor and Ugono-Orogun in Ughelli North Local Government Area (LGA) of the state.

The next phase of the project, which held 11th to 12th September 2014, entailed training/orientation of local stakeholders on the production of the stoves, which was facilitated by officials of JIL Environmental Services and EnviruMedic.
