Improved Cooking Stoves (ICS)

NCDC, with the support of different government and non-government organizations is involved in developing and promoting different types of ICS( Improved Cooking Stoves) in Eastern Nepal. NCDC is putting its utmost effort to achieve indoor air pollution free status by installing ICS at all households of the VDCs/ municipality.

Additionally, national targets include ensuring access to clean cooking technologies to all by 2019. Subsequently, the District Development Committee [DDC], Ilam has completed IAP free status in the whole Ilam district in 2015.
