Disseminating Solar lamps and Efficient Cook Stoves - PoA (PIN)

The PoA will support the use of solar lamps and efficient cook stoves to replace kerosene lamps and open fire cooking systems in Papua New Guinea), Solomon Islands, Fiji and Vanuatu.

Project Idea Note (PIN)

    The Programme of Activities (PoA) will distribute solar lamps and efficient cook stoves in rural areas. The solar lamps to be distributed have a life time of 3-7 years. The rocket stoves to be supplied use 40-50% less wood and burn 50-70% cleaner than open fire. The first CPA aims at distributing 20,000 solar lamps over 5 years, and 4500 cook stoves over 3 years, among rural households in Vanuatu
