Improved Cookstove Program in Bangladesh

Bangladesh Council of Scientific and Industrial Research (BCSIR) began research to develop a modern cooking stove in 1980. After research, they create different models of the cooking stoves for saving fuel, keeping kitchen smoke pollution-free and protecting users from smoke-related diseases. But unfortunately, this initiative failed and stopped in 1990. In December 2005 GIZ (German Development Co-operation) started the promotion of Improved Cook Stoves (ICS) using the clay stove model developed by IFRD (Institute of Fuel Research and Development) of BCSIR. But monitoring showed that the quality of stoves was not always according to design standards.
