In the cookstoves sector, much attention is paid to household-level cooking. But open fires and rudimentary biomass cookstoves are also used widely for entrepreneurial activities. Cleaner and more efficient cookstoves for these commercial applications can result in improved working conditions, higher profit margins, better quality products, and reduced environmental impacts.

Would you like to hear about current efforts to promote and expand clean and efficient technologies and approaches for productive uses? This webinar will explain how the use of improved cookstoves in three productive use applications is improving livelihoods, increasing quality of commercial products and reducing environmental degradation in Africa.
