In Myanmar, the SCALE project provides training to entrepreneurs in the production of improved cookstoves. Two ICS models have been developed: the Pathein stove in the Delta Region, and the A1 stove in the Dry Zone Region.
As part of the SCALE project, a biomass cooking technology lab has been established in Yezin. In January 2017, the Minister of Environmental Conservation and Forestry visited the lab.
In order to support the large scale dissemination of improved cookstoves in the country, the SCALE project organizes marketing and promotion events in villages. The project team also participates in forums on domestic cooking.
In Myanmar, the Delta Region and the Dry Zone Region traditionally host numerous cookstoves and clay pots producers. The SCALE project supports these entrepreneurs to produce improved models.
98% of improved cookstove users are women – the efficiency of these stoves allow them to spend less time in the kitchen and tend to other activities.
