Title
The Zambian Charcoal Stove

Abstract
Looked at globally, Zambia does not have a woodfuel crisis since the deforestation rate is a mere 1.26% per year measured in growing stock. However, a problem exists in urban and pert-urban areas where about 80% of the inhabitants are dependent on woodfuel. This is because all non-gazetted indigenous forests within a radius of 50 to 70 km in these areas, have been exploited. Compounding the problem are the unfavourable charcoal prices which have let to artificial shortages in most urban areas.
