Clean Cookstove Demonstration in Wulungsari2016-02-15 12:47:43
Yayasan Dian Desa (YDD) provides promotional support to I-CSI market aggregators in the form of cookstove demonstrations in pilot project areas. Kopernik, a market aggregator, actively takes advantage of this support.
On December 16, YDD collaborated with Kopernik to carry out a cookstove demonstration in the village of Wulungsari (. These demontration activities coincided with the local Viillage Jamboree and activities initiated by the FDN (Nusantara Village Forum). Wulungsari is one of FDN’s beneficiary villages and the event was attended by activists throughout Indonesia. )
Although the YDD team was met with rainy conditions which resulted in logistical challenges, the team was able to work around this to carry out the demonstration succesfully. Wulungsari villagers were enthisastic in witnessing the performance of these government-approved clean cookstoves and enjoyed participating in tasting the results. Demonstrations put on by YDD involve cooking a local menu for villagers to see the cookstoves perform as would be used in their homes.
Questions frequently asked by the villagers were regarding the price of the stoves and location at which it could be purchased. As Kopernik agents – responsible for selling and disseminating stoves – are active in Wulungsari and the surrounding area, these cookstoves are easily accessible by villagers.
