Cookstove smoke kills 1 person every 8 seconds - almost half the world's population still cooks food, boils water, and warms their homes by burning wood, animal and agricultural waste, and coal in open fires or rudimentary cookstoves.Scroll The Story
Daily exposure to the harmful smoke from traditional cooking practices is one of the world's biggest - but least known - killers. In fact, smoke from traditional cookstoves and open fires causes 4 million premature deaths annually with women and young children the most affected.
In addition, women and children face severe personal risks as they search for fuel, especially near refugee camps and in conflict zones. Inefficient cookstoves contribute to climate change through the emissions of greenhouse gasses and black carbon.
