International awareness of rape and other forms of gender-based violence (GBV) in Darfur motivates intense advocacy, shapes international public and political opinion, influences donor policies, and motivates relief and development interventions. In response to increasing attacks on displaced women and girls while collecting fuelwood, international non-governmental organisations (NGOs) began to promote fuel-efficient stoves (FES) as a means to reduce the need for fuelwood and reduce the risk of rape.
