Tracking clean cookstoves & fuel in Haiti

by Public-Private Alliance Foundation


The Public-Private Alliance Foundation (PPAF) is building evidence to increase impact of innovations for clean cooking in Haiti. Most families endure a poverty-respiratory disease-deforestation trap of dependence on charcoal for cooking. PPAF & other organizations are conducting R&D to improve lives & livelihoods for dozens of women & girls, at several sites, through solar, biogas & ethanol fuel & cookstoves & related small business. Your support helps PPAF to engage and track & promote this!

Haitian families suffer from heavy reliance on charcoal for cooking the daily meals. The World Health Organization declares household air pollution as one of the world's most pressing health and environmental problems. Women & children are especially affected, by toxins & constrained education & income possibilities. Hillsides are denuded and soil slides into the sea. Solar, biogas & ethanol cooking innovations are underway, but they need monitoring, evidence & promotion to create impact.


PPAF is working with 7 Haitian & USA-based organizations to implement, monitor and advocate non-polluting cookstoves and fuels - solar ovens (sunshine), biogas (kitchen and other waste) & ethanol (high-proof alcohol). Settings include a network of girls' clubs, several women-owned small-scale businesses, 3 schools/training centers & an R&D agricultural center. Our project engages local groups, documents innovations, assesses challenges & successes, publicizes results & promotes expansion.

Long-Term Impact

After building up qualitative and quantitative information to improve dozens of lives & livelihoods in Port-au-Prince, Cotes de Fer, Hinche & Leogane, PPAF & collaborators aim to reach hundreds through girls' clubs, small businesses, schools & training centers. The Global Alliance for Clean Cookstoves, Solar Cookers International, Solar CITIES Biogas Innoventers & Practitioners, Population Council, Solavore LLC, ECHO Global Farm & the United Nations are resources for info & sites for advocacy.
