Federal Government through National Council on Climate Change has endorsed an initiative to distribute 80 million clean cookstoves free to households.
This is to solve global climate crisis, environmental challenges and improve livehoods.

The initiative is under auspices of Greenplinth Africa, with strategic partners.

Greenplinth said it is the largest clean cooking systems project in the world and a step to combat adverse health and environmental impacts associated with traditional cooking methods, such as indoor air pollution and deforestation.

President, Dr. Olawale Akinwumi, in a statement, said the cookstoves would transform lives, mostly for women and children affected by harmful traditional cooking practices.

He noted adoption of clean and efficient cookstoves would lead to improved indoor air quality, reduce respiratory illnesses, and mitigate climate change through lower carbon emissions.
