2. I would like to participate in this partnership cordially. The Global Alliance for Clean Cookstoves initiated by social development organization of Bangladesh. The partnership between this organization are play vital role because 90% family depends on solid fuel for their cooking. Solid fuels means wood, cowdung, agricultural waste. About 44 million solid fuels are use for house cooking which about 68% for total national fuels. General stoves create more smoke which equal to 400 cigeratte a day. We know that the rate rate of population growth in Bangladesh is over. About 90% people live in the village and major portion depend on organic fuels. According to BIDS 2004, 97% fuels and wood, 44% are tree branches and 60% are tree leaves which are directly attacked on forestation. As a result, forest are destroying gradually and changed Bio diversity. Rural traditional stoves create a lot of smoke which is harmful for health. According to WHO in the developing countries health risk is very high due to internal air pollution. For this reason, 2 million people died immature age. According to IAP every year 78.28% people directly or indirectly die due to environment pollution and 3 crore people indirectly suffer various incurable diseases. In Bangladesh female are directly involved with cooking and also serious diseases. Such as: Asthma, sneeze, tuberculosis etc.
