Scientist’s fuel-efficient stove-for-work program in Ethiopia protects trees
- Published on
Ethiopia has experienced significant deforestation over the past century – driven by rapid population growth, the expansion of agricultural land, and the unsustainable demand for wood, often as a source of fuel for cooking and heating. The World Bank suggests that less than 3 percent of the country’s forests remain untouched.
A researcher at the International Center for Agricultural Research in the Dry Areas (ICARDA) since 2011, and previously a development professional with experience gained on several food security initiatives, Bezaiet, a graduate of Clark University and Purdue University in the United States, is well-versed on the challenges facing Ethiopia’s rural communities.
