Improved occupation from improved cook stoves

The SWITCH-Asia project Improved Cook Stoves (ICS) is developing the cook stove market in Laos by enhancing the performance of all the actors in the ICS value chain: producers, retailers, testing agencies and users. The ICSs promoted by the project use up to 20% less wood and charcoal than traditional stoves. They also provide newer and better employment opportunities for local producers and retailers, as these interviewees explain.
