Malawi is a land-locked, least developed country.
That means that many people don’t have money for electricity and don’t have access to gas or solar.
So, what is the reality on the ground for the 2.8 billion people that don’t have access to clean cooking?
What are the risks to the environment, the health of these people and the economy of the country?
Even with urbanisation, the science and demographics are clear - at least 2 billion people will continue to rely on burning wood to cook over the next 10 years, and electricity won't come close to filling the energy gap.
And the population is growing in Malawi.
So solutions need to be found.
Sadly, the biomass movement doesn’t have a loud enough voice.
And they need one.
Particularly before Malawi participates as a Global Champion for Energy access at the UN High Level Dialogue on Energy in September this year. (#HLDE 2021), chaired by a pragmatic Nigerian Lady, Damilola Ogunbiyi.
Today we bring all of this to life.
And TIE’s important role.
So throw on those running shoes or grab that coffee and have a listen.
