State Minister for Power, Energy and Mineral Resources Nasrul Hamid has said efforts are underway to ensure smoke and pollution-free cooking system in the country.

At a discussion on the virtual platform last night, he said: “We have introduced Tk80 lakh high quality clean cookstoves in place of traditional cookstoves.”

The state minister said the power division adopted Country Action Plan for Clean Cookstoves in 2013 aimed at ensuring clean cooking for all by 2023.

Sustainable and Renewable Energy Development Authority (SREDA) is operating Household Energy Platform Program in Bangladesh for adjusting the clean cooking system, he said.

Nasrul informed the meeting that said Bangladesh is working to ensure 100% access to clean cooking system with an integrated approach.
