Nearly two million people die each year as a result of inhaling lethal smoke from kitchen stoves and fires.

Practical Action joined forces with Bosch and Siemens Home Appliances Group (BSH) to develop a smoke hood that could be fitted to a fire to vent out the smoke.

They created a computer-aided design system to enable development professionals to design customised smoke hoods.

In Nepal, Practical Action tested the different smoke hoods, assessing their effect on pollution levels in the home and fuel consumption.
