The specific objectives are; to assess the level of awareness on the stove in Embu North Sub County, Evaluate how the cost of the stove influenced its impact in sustainable use of woodfuel, finally to assess the level of utilization of the stove and the effect of this to sustainable wood fuel use in the study area.
