In Ghana, millions of tonnes of wood are consumed as fuel annually. Due to unsustainable harvesting of trees, the livelihood of forest resource-dependent communities is directly affected. Bamboo can provide a sustainable alternative for fuel. This project provided training on the production of charcoal from bamboo, and distributed energy-efficient stoves to make the use of charcoal more efficient. The project also explored the use of activated bamboo charcoal as a means to purify water and treat waste water.
