Indoor cooking smoke is one of the leading causes of disease and death in the developing world, affecting 4 billion people who still cook with solid biomass fuel. Biomass cooking is a major source of greenhouse gas emissions. Fuel harvesting for cooking degrades forests and increases the risk of erosion, landslides, and flooding, a concern central to ISET's work in flood resilience.
Heza restores the health of people and landscapes in the global south by supporting ultra-low-emission, renewably-fueled cooking systems
