The premise
 Sustainable development is panacea
to long term transformation of
 Economic indicators must prove that
lives are really changed for the better
 Investment in infrastructure is the
foundation of all development
NDFF Conference 2013 AS
Post MDG thinking agrees:
 a practical focus on things like poverty,
hunger, water, sanitation, education and
healthcare. With better focus on reaching the
very poorest and most excluded people…
 More than half of us now live in cities. Private
investment in developing countries now
dwarfs aid flows.
 The 1.2 billion poorest people account for
only 1 per cent of world consumption while
the billion richest consume 72 per cent.

The Facts
 Smoke from cooking with
wood cause 95,300 deaths,
mostly women and children
in Nigeria every year (WHO)
 Beyond health, increasing
wood use costs poor
families money that can be
used for food, education
and health and contributes
to deforestation.
NDFF Conference 2013 AS
Nigeria loses 3% of its forest
cover every year.
A smokey situation..
 Smoke inhaled from
cooking three meals a
day by traditional 3stone fire is equal to
smoking 3 packets (60
sticks) of cigarettes
 National
target: 20
million stoves by 2020

What is clean cooking energy
 Improved and efficient wood,
charcoal burning stoves, cooking
gas, etc.
anticipates cultural affinity for
certain ways of cooking, hence
its adaptability to wood,
kerosene and gas.

 Comes in various sizes and
Naming the Opportunities
 Technical knowledge: evaluate
energy proposals, carbon credit
system, setting standards for
new products
 Ideas and entrepreneurship: to
set up clean energy plants, bio
fuel- massive waste abound in
 Support to change champions in
government: Jigawa making the
improved stoves with 70,000
made in 4 years ICEED working
to set up an Assembly plant in
Eboyin state to make stoves in
NDFF Conference 2013 AS
 Connecting African spaces with
best practice innovations: E.g.
the wonder bag from South
Africa, the Toyola stove from
 Partnerships:
Working with
credible foundations that are not
averse to taking risk
 Investment: Private sector
investments in the LPG, supply
chain such as LPG filling plant,
storage facility and distribution
and in power plant is a gap
The Human Foothold: Women and
 A social enterprise model to
ensure clean energy reaches
the poor, provides, income and
sustains a demand and
accountability loop is required
 Mobilise women to demand for
higher spending on clean cook
stoves programmes

What are the gains
Diversified economy  Begin a reversal of our
3% annual tree cover
Waste to wealth gain loss
Reduce the number  Reduce the present
of women and girls
dying - 95000 every
year (WHO)
unemployment rate of
23.9% (NBS, 2013)
 Earn income from a 20
to 200 billion USD
NDFF Conference 2013 AS
Thank you for listening
 Access to clean energy is a problem that
we can solve as a country. If we get the
right people, right strategies we can put
this behind us and put ourselves on the
world map..
