    The objective of the NAMA promote the use of biomass in rural areas to replace, in part, wood fuel and avoid forest degradation.

    Activities: (2016 - 2017)
    It is estimated that more than 6 million tonnes of wood fuel are consumed annually when the sustainable output of natural forests is 4.6 million tonnes translating to a loss of 330 000 hectares of forest area or over 60 million trees per year. Over-exploitation of wood resources has resulted in destruction of carbon sinks, severe land degradation, soil erosion and siltation of rivers and dams.

    The programme aims to: (1) reduce loss of woodlands which are carbon sinks that help to capture carbon; (2) create awareness of advantages of use of efficient cook stoves as compared to open fire places; (3) train local artisans and builders in the construction of efficient cook stoves.

    The preparation of the NAMA lasts 10 months.
