Project Gaia/UNHCR’s “Clean Energy, Safe Energy” Program in Kebribeyah Camp, Somali Regional State, Ethiopia

ETHOS Conference

28 January 2007

slide2

Project Gaia seeks to revolutionize the household energy

sector in developing nations through the introduction of affordable, locally-procured alcohol—ethanol and methanol—along with appliances that are designed specifically for alcohol.

The lead appliance is the CleanCook stove by Dometic AB of Sweden. It has a track record of more than 100,000 test days in the developing world without incident.

  • 18,000 camp residents (Somali)
  • 130 CleanCook stoves, June 2005
  • Sub-Project Agreement signed between Gaia Association and UNHCR-RLO to promote ethanol-fuelled CleanCook stoves as alternative cooking option for camp households, January 1, 2006

Women often have

stones thrown at

them, are physically

assaulted, pay bribes,

and are sometimes

sexually assaulted

while gathering

fuel wood for cooking.

A typical kitchen, UNHCR

Kebribeyah camp, Ethiopia.

Constructed by women from

tree branches to form the

dome shape, the frame is

then covered with plastic,

tattered clothes and

blankets, completely sealing

off any ventilation through

the roof.

slide11

An infant exposed to IAP from burning fuel wood.

This photograph was taken on 12 November 06 at the camp. This young child was in her mother’s arms in a smoky cooking shelter. As is customary, the mother held the child as she cooked the family’s meal. Note the child’s runny nose, tearing eyes and perspiration. It was extremely uncomfortable in the shelter. The air was heavy with smoke.

clean energy safe energy
“Clean Energy, Safe Energy”
  • Clean burning fuel
  • Reduced exposure to IAP
  • CleanCook stove is easy to use
  • No stove/fuel safety incident in the camp since project inception
  • Decrease or eliminate accidental injuries, violent confrontation and sexual assaults against women and children fuel wood gatherers.
  • Other benefits: girl’s education, mitigates deforestation, reduce administrative and financial burdens on UNHCR and its partners caused by health and resource conflict problems that come with the use of fuel wood.
slide17

“I no longer gather fuel wood since I received the CleanCook stove. When I gathered wood, I was very tired. I had to walk very far. I left in the morning and returned at 3 pm. I gathered wood for 5-6 hours. With the wood stove, I had eye irritation. Now I can sit close to the CleanCook stove without problems,”

--Hali

slide18

“I stopped collecting wood since the CleanCook stove.

I collected wood for 8 hours each time, 2 or 3 times a week. I had pain in my back and legs. Collecting wood is dangerous, because the owner of the land beats people and takes the wood we collect. It has not happened to me, but it happens.”

--Zaynab
