Smoke Free Village

The use of biomass for cooking fuel and associated smoke exposure contributes to serious health problems, leading to the death of 14,000 people in Cambodia per year. Many more lives, mainly those of women and children, are affected by smoke-related health conditions that reduce overall quality and length of life. Further, the smoke emissions from open fires add to greenhouse gasses that are responsible for climate change. Finally, cooking is strongly connected to livelihoods, gender and inequalities at household level.

Together with our partner Energizing Development (EnDev) we promote awareness, demand creation, and capacity building of local institutions to provide behaviour change communication for clean cooking. The Smoke-Free Village (SFV) approach aligns with Cambodia Basic Energy, NDC, and Health Plans to prevent non-communicable diseases, and builds on the approach for Community-Led Total Sanitation. The SFV is a gender-based approach with the Commune Councils for Women and Children as the main partner to encourage villages to collectively eliminate smoke from burning wood. The initiative stimulates demand for clean stoves and fuels, and triggers suppliers to sell more of their products and services in villages.
