Proceedings of the Conference on Charcoal and Communities in Africa. Maputo, Mozambique. 16-18 June 2008. The conference brought together stakeholders from different constituencies and provided an opportunity to learn about different aspects of the charcoal continuum, i.e. household energy, livelihoods, supply chains, deforestation vs. sustainable production, carbon emissions, health, and policies. In addition to a range of presentations and lively discussions, a major part of the conference was dedicated to working groups, which elaborated major findings and recommendations including project ideas and concept notes in the fields of livelihoods, environment and health, policies, and information and technology transfer.
