Community based Clean Cooking Engagement, Petti, Abuja

Nigeria, which already grapples with its position among the ten most climate-vulnerable nations, faces an added burden of being a significant contributor to greenhouse gas emissions. These emissions primarily result from widespread deforestation, vehicular emissions, industrial processes, and the rudimentary cooking methods mentioned earlier. While the Nigerian government and relevant agencies have made efforts to mitigate these emissions, the challenges remain numerous. However, a viable solution to counter the health risks associated with traditional cooking lies in a transition to cleaner energy sources, such as solar cooking stoves.
Recognizing this, the energy transition office visited the Petti community in Kwali LGA for a significant advocacy visit. This visit sought to educate women about the dangers of their existing cooking practices, introduce them to cleaner, safer alternatives and observe their current cooking practices.
