Women groups under the Ghana Environmental Management Project (GEMP) initiative in the Northern Region have been introduced to new energy efficient heat Retention cooking stove which consumes less charcoal and fuel in the rural communities.

The Ghana Environmental Management Project is an initiative being implemented in 100 communities in the northern region, aimed at adopting sustainable land and water management systems to improve food security as well reduce poverty by means of strengthening rural communities to reverse land degradation and desertification.

As part of effort to minimized and conserve the natural vegetation, a non electric heat retention cooker known as the new energy efficiency bags have been introduced to women in GEMP rural communities. This affords them to boil food for some minutes before moving it into the retention bag to continue cooking for about an hour after it has been moved from heat source.

The Northern Regional Manager for EPA, Abu Iddrisu in an interview noted that the initiative is a partnership with an NGO, which will reduce significant dependency on fuel wood by rural women.

Some women who witnessed the demonstration expressed satisfaction

Iddrisu Sofia said "The demonstration of the new cooking bag I just saw with the I notice that it will save the time I mostly spend cooking most of my food as a house wife since the food will be warm. I notice we used less firewood or charcoal for cooking which am very happy about the new innovation."

Hawa Lange, Magasia said "I saw that the energy bag was easy to use since I did not see any difficulty comparing it to the normal cooking hour for two or three hours but this is less.my children will be eating hot food and I will use less firewood."

The new cooking bag can be used to prepare variety of food like rice, wheat, Oat, Banku, TZ, Yam after it has undergone a little heat from the coal pot or gas stove.From Central Gonja District Noah Nash for Viasat one news
