Clean Cooking Solution Nepal 2013: Inforgraphics

The then Prime minister of Nepal, Mr. Babu Ram Bhattarai while inaugurating the first ever celebrated Renewable Energy Week back in January 25, 2013 declared that by 2017 every households will have an access to clean cooking solutions thereby reducing the severe health risks to rural women and girls who typically spend most of their time in kitchen preparing foods for the family. [See here and here for some quick facts on the state of Nepal's energy mix.] As a lead agency to implement clean cooking solution in Nepal, Alternative Energy Promotion Center(AEPC) has been planning for some fundamental change in its approach to speed up the clean cooking campaign so as to effectively materialize the slogan, which somehow couldn’t gain the momentum in 2013 arising various budgetary constraints and structural challenges. Nevertheless, Here are few info-graphics showing some of the clean cooking project interventions during 2013 made by AEPC through its national and sub-national outreach agencies.
