Improved Traditional Stove in three villages of Aditekelezan subreagion
The project’s location is in three villages of Aditekelezan subzoba of Anseba Region, about 50 km north of Asmara. It is an area adjacent to the only remaining green belt area of the country known as Semenawi-Bahri. It is located with in geographically clustered area a highly degraded land, which only a few shrubs & trees are available.

The overall objective of the project is to rehabilitate the ecological condition of the project area through afforestation and soil and water conservation activities. Where as the immediate objectives are to reduce GHG emissions through using indigenous improved biomass saving stoves and improve biodiversity through tree planting and establishing enclosures to protect land degradation by slowing down the run-off and to cover the area with vegetation.

As the land degradation is mostly caused by human induced activities such as cutting trees for domestic use and over-utilizing of the land for agricultural activities; the project is designed on participatory approach and mobilize the communities to participate on afforestation and soil and water conservation activities.

This project is targeted to households who currently use old type Mogogo (the traditional unimproved stove) and would like to upgrade it to a more efficient and effective stove. NEUW will implement the provision of improved traditional stove to the rural community and work for the improvement of the livelihood of the villagers. Every beneficiary household is encouraged to plant edible tree/valuable tree around their premises. Project duration is for 12 months.
