Improving Access of Women to Liquiefied Petroleum GAS (LPG) as a Substitute for Fuel Wood in Nigeria
Improving Access of Women to Liquiefied Petroleum GAS (LPG) as a Substitute for Fuel Wood in Nigeria
The project seeks to deliver cleaner, modern fuel and create sustainable markets for its consumption and use by women in low income households in rural communities. The Project is designed to expand access to affordable LPG as a substitute for wood fuel, which is currently the main fuel for households, schools and small businesses in many parts of Nigeria. It will target rural and peri-urban areas of the country. The overarching goal is to improve the socio-economic and environmental conditions of the poor and vulnerable, particularly women and children, whose health are usually negatively affected by indoor air pollution arising from cooking with fuel wood. It is an attempt to expand clean energy services to poor households, while simultaneously and indirectly addressing the environmental effects of energy production and use. The focus on the LPG is to explore its comparative advantages compared to traditional biomass fuels, as well as the abundance of gas and petroleum resources in the country.
